One dead, one in custody after shooting in Latta

Posted:

LATTA, Okla. -- The Pontotoc County Sheriff's Office says an Ada man is behind bars for shooting and killing a man Wednesday morning.

The sheriff's office said 32-year-old K.C. Cole is in the Pontotoc County Jail for killing a man during an argument on County Road 3536.

Cole is facing charges of first degree manslaughter and shooting with intent to kill.

Original story:

The Pontotoc County Sheriff's Office said a man is dead after gun fire rang out during an argument.

The Pontotoc County Sheriff's Office said what started as an argument on County Road 3536 ended with punches thrown and shots fired, leaving one man dead.

Sheriff John Christian said an argument broke out between two men around 10:30 a.m. Wednesday in Latta. One man claimed the other’s dogs were too aggressive. Punches ended up being thrown and that's when Christian said things turned deadly.

"When deputies and other officers arrived, they found a male subject lying on the ground beside the pickup with a female over him giving CPR,” he said.

Christian said that man, whose name has not been released, later died being transported to the Chickasaw Nation Medical Center.

Neighbors, like Maya Wilson, said they never thought something like this would happen just feet from where they live.

"My grandma said somebody got shot down by where we live at and I was like 'thank god I have my kids with me' because it's crazy to hear something like that happen so close to the house,” Wilson said.

According to Christian, the shooting happened just down the road from Latta Schools, but no action was needed because of their response time.

"We had the thing under control so quickly that I don't believe there was any threat at all, well I know I know there wasn't any threat from the school,” he said.

Christian said no arrests have been made, but they are interviewing a suspect at this time.
