Police: 15-year-old arrested for allegedly shooting at relative since he couldn’t go to football practice
OKLAHOMA CITY – A ninth grade student at a local high school was arrested for allegedly shooting at his relative.
Authorities were called to the 2100 block of N. Jordan Ave. after a woman called police, saying her 15-year-old son had beat her up and shot a gun at her.
Officers say the woman is the boy’s step-grandmother and is married to his grandfather, who is his legal guardian.
According to the arrest affidavit, the teen became upset after he was told he couldn’t go to football practice at Douglas High School because he was grounded.
That’s when the boy went into his room and grabbed a rifle.
The affidavit claims he fired one round at the woman, who threw her other child under a desk to protect him.
The suspect then dropped the gun and started punching her in the face.
After the attack, records state the teen picked up the rifle and walked out the door, saying he was going to football practice.
He is now facing a charge of shooting with intent to kill and domestic assault with a deadly weapon.
