MUSKOGEE — County law enforcers are seeking answers after two Muskogee people were hospitalized following a double-shooting Friday.

A man called 911 at 3:33 p.m. from 2405 N. 32nd St., #68, and said he and his wife had been shot. Dispatch logs state the man was unresponsive less than a minute after making the phone call. 

 Muskogee County Sheriff’s Office Investigator Bert Poole said two people, a man and a woman with gunshot wounds, were removed from the house and taken to a Tulsa hospital.

Both people were alive late Friday evening, but were in critical condition, said Investigator Roy Banks.

Poole said investigators entered the mobile home just before 7 p.m. after obtaining a search warrant. Poole was unsure of the condition of the two wounded people and did not want to speculate on the number of times they’d been shot.
