NORMAN Okla. – A gun shot rang out around 4:00 a.m. in a duplex near Lindsey and southeast 24th St. Saturday.

Two hours before that, police responded to a domestic hostage situation at the same residence.

Suporah Busby said her now ex-boyfriend, Kelly turner, forced her daughter and her son’s girlfriend to stay in her home.

Busby said the ordeal started when they got home from having a few drinks.

After witnessing Turner loading a handgun, Busby said she got scared and took her two-year-old inside the home.

When Busby went back outside, that’s when she says Turner made his move, locking her out and barricading himself inside with her family.

Turner then called her and said he felt like everyone was against him.

Neighbors witnessed the commotion outside and called police.

Police attempted to make contact with Turner but were not able to get him to come outside.

After hours of talking, police heard a gunshot fired from inside the home.

That is when police called in the SWAT Team.

After a lengthy negotiation, Swat was able to talk Turner into releasing the hostages.

A few moments later, Turner walked out of the home with his hands in the air.

Police say Turner is now in custody and could face multiple charges, including: Domestic abuse, possession of a firearm and intentional discharge of a firearm at/into a dwelling.
