PAOLI, Okla. – An arrest affidavit for an Oklahoma mother reveals new details about the man she allegedly shot.

On Aug. 29, officers were called to a home in Paoli after learning about a man suffering from a gunshot wound.

“We arrived at one location, where we found a 31-year-old male who had been shot. He was on the porch of a residence” said Garvin County Sheriff Larry Rhodes.

According to the arrest affidavit, the victim told investigators that Valerie Fowler shot him in his girlfriend’s bedroom. The report states that he was shot twice and was airlifted to an Oklahoma City hospital for treatment.

At that point, investigators went to Fowler’s home after she called 911.

“The woman called around 7:20 a.m. to report that she shot a male inside her house,” Rhodes said.

Authorities then spoke with Fowler’s daughter. According to the arrest affidavit, she told police that the victim comes over at least three times a week after her mother leaves for work.

On that day, she said that they were in bed kissing when Fowler kicked in the bedroom door.

The girl said that she jumped out of bed, which is when Fowler allegedly fired a gun at the victim as he was trying to get out of the bed.

The girl also told investigators that Fowler fired a second round at the victim while he was walking down the hallway to the front door.

Police arrested 34-year-old Valerie Fowler for assault and battery with a deadly weapon.
