ENID, Okla. — Enid Police Department officers responded at about 8 p.m. Friday to a report of a man possibly being shot at in the 600 block of South Hayes.

Sgt. Bryan Hart said officers created a perimeter around Colonial Plaza Apartments, 613 S. Hayes, and spoke with a 29-year-old man.

The man said while outside his apartment he was approached by a black male who was dressed in all black clothing and possibly had a red bandanna covering his face, Hart said. The man said they exchanged some words, and the black male pointed an unknown type of handgun at him. The man ran from the area, and as the suspect left, he possibly fired one round.

Officers and a K-9 unit searched the area, but did not locate the suspect, Hart said. No one was injured.
