When officers arrived, they found two people who had been shot.

According to KSWO, one victim was killed and the other victim was taken to an Oklahoma City hospital where they were stable.

The incident is being investigated as a homicide.

Lawton police identified the victim as Christopher Pugh. No other details have been released.
