A Stratford woman was shot Monday and authorities began a manhunt which lasted nearly six hours.

Misty Dawn Pittman, 36, was shot once in the stomach allegedly by her husband, Bobby Ezra Pittman, 31, at 2:45 a.m., according to Garvin County deputies.

Misty Pittman is listed in good condition at OU Medical Center. Bobby Pittman was arrested at 8:30 a.m. at a residence in Stratford.

Police allege Bobby Pittman fired seven shots through his own bedroom window while his wife slept in the 600 block of Hayden in Stratford. Undersheriff Steve Brooks spoke to Pauls Valley Daily Democrat reporter Barry Porterfield Monday.

“She was lying in bed asleep and then she felt a sharp pain,” Brooks said.

“She told me she heard several gunshots and felt the pain. We found what appeared to be seven bullet holes in the window to Misty Pittman’s bedroom,” he said.

“So far we’ve been unable to determine what the motive was behind the shooting.”

Misty Pittman was taken by private vehicle to Carl Albert Hospital before being airlifted to OUMC.

Though no motive has been discovered, Brooks said the couple had a confrontation involving a gun only hours before the shooting.

At about 5 p.m. the previous Sunday, Misty Pittman said she returned home after work where she was confronted by her husband, who was agitated and armed with a rifle at the time.

She told authorities Pittman had already fired some rounds in their living room before she had arrived.

“She said he was being irrational. She was scared so she left the residence, rode around and hid out,” Brooks said.

More than five hours later the woman returned home after being informed Pittman had calmed down.

Pittman was arrested without incident at the home of friends.

Pittman had gone to several homes in the Stratford area, including those of family members, in between the shooting and his arrest, according to Brooks.
