CANADIAN COUNTY, Okla. - It was a crazy Tuesday morning for Charlie Bradley.

He says a man he hired to do some work came to his home and the pair got into an argument.

He admits a few punches were thrown, but he never expected the alleged suspect would grab a gun.

“I thought he was going to the truck to cool off. He came back with a gun and started shooting at me,” he said.

Officials say it only went downhill from there.

“Actually, he was chasing him around in the neighborhood, firing rounds at him,” said Canadian County Undersheriff Chris West.

"I looked out the back door and they were chasing each other around the car,” Laura, who lives in Richland, said. “He (the suspect) just boom, boom, boom, was shooting."

Fortunately, no one was injured by the gunfire.

"He didn't hit me. I was dodging and weaving," Bradley said.

Bradley says he ran one direction and then another in an attempt to get away. Finally, he made it to a neighbor's house to call police.

He says that's when the man, who he knows as Kenny, took his truck.

“He said, ‘Give me the keys.’ And, I held them out, and I said, ‘Just don't hurt anybody,” Bradley said.

“He (the suspect) took off and barreled off and drove down the road fast,” Laura said.

At that point, the alleged suspect headed west down Hefner Rd. toward Hwy 81.

As he crossed the highway, El Reno police spotted the truck and started a chase.

Authorities say the man kept driving, eventually crashing west of Hwy 81, near the river.

Canadian County deputies searched the area for the suspect, but didn't find him.

Back at Bradley's house, neighbors are still shocked by the scene.

“We have never had anyone shoot at each other out here. Never," Laura said.

Bradley is just hoping that suspect doesn't come back.

“He's already tried to kill me, stole my truck. Whatever happens, happens,” Bradley said.

Canadian County officials are still searching for that suspect.

Right now, they do not know his full name, only that he goes by Kenny. They also believe he is living at a hotel in Yukon.
