NOBLE, Okla. – An Oklahoma man was arrested for allegedly shooting his brother-in-law in the neck.

Around 12:45 a.m. Thursday, deputies were called to reports of a shooting near Cemetery Rd. and 72nd St. in Noble.

When deputies arrived to the scene, they found 26-year-old Christopher Kirkwood with a gunshot wound to the neck.

Shetley was later arrested for domestic assault and battery with a deadly weapon.
