NORMAN — A 37-year-old man who was shot while in his vehicle Tuesday evening at an apartment in west Norman survived his injuries, according to Norman police reports.

The victim was hit at least two times in the upper torso and arm area and was transported by EMSStat to OU Medical Center.

Norman police received a call to 911 at 7:31 p.m. from the Cedar Lake Apartment complex in the 4100 block of West Main Street, where a reporting party heard two gunshots and a “car and a truck leaving really fast,” according to investigation reports.

About seven minutes later, a call came in from Raising Cane’s at 3617 W. Main St., where the gunshot victim reportedly went inside the restaurant to seek help and a customer called 911.

The Norman Police Criminal Investigations Division and Crime Scene Unit responded to both scenes and are investigating.

One person was detained Tuesday and released. That person is no longer considered a suspect.

Norman police do not believe this was a random event and continue to investigate further.

No suspects are currently in custody, and no suspects have been identified. Norman detectives have interviewed several witnesses.
