Police investigate shooting involving juveniles in northeast Oklahoma City

OKLAHOMA CITY - Police are investigating a shooting involving juveniles in northeast Oklahoma City.

The shooting was reported on Sunday afternoon in the 1100 block of Windemere.

"It’s sad that our kids, they don’t have no respect for life," said neighbor Dietra Grayson.

Police said juveniles were fighting in the street when one pulled out a gun.

As the other juveniles ran into a house, the suspect fired three shots towards the door.

Police said a victim was hit in the hip and leg area then taken to a hospital. He is expected to be okay.

Grayson said the decline of the community is a big reason things like this happen.

“It’s all because of our community going down, not any funding, any help for our children," she said.

She wants more funding for youth community centers to keep kids busy and productive.

And, her message to children?

"Kids, life is too short to go by shooting one another. Let’s talk about it. Let’s sit down and talk about it," she said.

She also said adults are to blame.

“It’s not their fault. It’s our fault too, as adults, because we have not stood up and took our community back,” she said.

No other details have been released at this time.
