OKLAHOMA CITY - Authorities rushed to a shooting early Wednesday morning in Oklahoma City.

Around 7:30 a.m., police were called to the 2100 block of W. Eubanks after a man told dispatchers he shot his brother-in-law.

Neighbors are worried about this violence so close to home.

"Just to be a couple of doors down, those are my neighbors. I've only been here two or three weeks now," a woman who didn't want to be identified told KFOR. "I just left from a neighborhood that was full of violence."

She said her kids were on their way to school when they ran back inside to tell their mom about a commotion right outside their front door.

"They came out, and they was like, 'Mom, something's going on out here,'" she recalled.

That commotion turned out to be a shooting.

"When officers arrived, they found one person lying in the front yard of the residence. He had been shot," said MSgt. Gary Knight, Oklahoma City Police Department.

A man told officers he shot his brother-in-law.

According to the arrest affidavit, the suspect, was upset because he believed his wife was cheating on him with the victim.

The victim was rushed to the hospital for surgery but is expected to survive.

"I keep the family in prayers no matter what happened. It's none of my business. I just pray for that guy that got shot, that he's doing great and praying for the family, praying for closure, for whatever is going on over there," the woman told KFOR.

Police want to let residents know this was an isolated incident and appears to be a domestic dispute between two men.

"These two knew each other. There was apparently some type of beef between them, and that's what led up to this," Knight said.

Police have the shooter detained, and a woman was also questioned by police.

This shooting is under investigation.

Police will determine if the shooter will be arrested and, if so, what charges he’ll be faced with.
