shooting

Enid police say a 22-year-old man was shot during a robbery at his apartment for medical marijuana.

ENID, Okla. — A 22-year-old Enid man was flown to an Oklahoma City hospital Wednesday night after being shot in his apartment by one of three robbery suspects, police said.

About 9 p.m., Enid Police Department officers responded to a shots fired call in an apartment building at 1800 Mosher Drive, Capt. Tim Jacobi said. Officers found a man suffering from a gunshot wound and arterial bleeding from his arm.

"Medical first responders had not yet arrived on the scene so officers applied a tourniquet to the victim’s arm and immediately transported him by patrol car to Integris Bass Baptist Health Center as a life saving measure," Jacobi said.

The captain said investigating officers learned the suspects arrived at the man's apartment and attempted to rob him of medical marijuana.

"During the altercation, one of the suspects fired a round that struck the victim in the arm, and then all suspects ran from the scene," Jacobi said.

The suspects were described as three young black males, ages 17 to 20.

"The victim was later flown to an Oklahoma City area hospital for further treatment and is believed to be in stable condition," he said. "His identity is not being released."

Police are asking anyone with information about the incident to contact them.
