LOGAN COUNTY, Okla. - Logan County officials are investigating after a man was shot in the face.

It happened around 10:15 Sunday morning outside a home in the 500 block of Rock Creek Drive, near the intersection of Charter Oak and Broadway.

Investigators said it's unclear exactly why the victim was at the southern Logan County home.

But, he was leaving when the shots were fired.

"Was kind of standing in the doorway. They heard a pop. They heard another pop. He told his girlfriend in the vehicle 'I think I've been shot' and started bleeding from the face," said Logan County Sheriff Damon Devereaux.

The victim got back in his vehicle and was able to drive two and a half miles to the Oak Cliff Fire Station.

"I'm sure that was in his mind, the quickest and safest place to go to start receiving some medical attention," Devereaux said.

"Luckily, he was able to drive here after being shot," said Oak Cliff Fire Chief Tim Townsend.

Townsend treated the victim and said he was shot in the cheek.

"Had an entrance wound here and an exit wound on this side, so it went kind of straight through over the top of his, where the top of his teeth, the top of his gums, kind of went through his sinus cavity," Townsend said.

Investigators canvassed the neighborhood for several hours on Sunday searching for clues.

The only suspect description was a Latino male.

Townsend said the victim was shaken.

"He was really scared. You know, I mean, as you can imagine, you know, you've just been shot, you've got a hole in each cheek. So, yeah, he was pretty distressed. But, he was answering questions. He was coherent," Townsend said.

And, he was grateful the bullet hit where it did.

"He is lucky. A little higher, you know, it would've been a different story," Townsend said.

The victim has been released from the hospital.

So far, no arrests have been made.
