Shot fired at deputy after fireworks

MOORE, Okla. -- There was no shortage of fireworks and big booms Wednesday night for the Fourth of July. 

However, it was a different type of boom in Moore last night. 

Now the Cleveland County Sheriff's Department is looking for the shooter.

Meghan McCormick with the Cleveland County Sheriff's Department said a deputy was on routine patrol on Bryant near 7th St. just after 7 p.m. Wednesday when a shooter fired at him.

The Deputy was not harmed but the car suffered damage to the driver's side backseat.

The incident is being investigated. 

McCormick said there is one possible witness.

"There was a woman, a concerned citizen, who stopped immediately after it happened and checked on one of our deputies," she said. "We would just like the possibility to thank her and if she's out there and we're hoping she sees this on the news and will come forward."

Please call the Cleveland County Sheriff's Office if you have any information about the gunfire.
