MIDWEST CITY, Okla. (KFOR) – An investigation is underway after a son allegedly shot and killed his father, Midwest City police say.
Around 8:45 a.m. Wednesday, officials received a 911 call from a crying woman who said, “My son just shot my husband and ran outside with the gun!”
Police responded to the scene near NE 23rd and Spencer and found Karl John Haucke, 57, dead with a gunshot wound.
Officials took Kurtis Leon Raines-Haucke into custody after his mother identified him as the alleged shooter.
