An Ada man allegedly shot his live-in girlfriend late Tuesday night.
Arrested was 31-year-old Tyrone Logan. The victim is 29-year-old Nancy Porter.
Ada Police Sgt. Destry Musgrove was on routine patrol in the 400 block of North Broadway at 11:55 p.m. when he heard what he believed was either a gunshot or firecracker. Musgrove drove toward where the sound came from and called in a possible gun shot being fired.
A few minutes after hearing the shot, Musgrove received a call from Central Dispatch.
“Central Dispatch advised me that they received a report of a drive-by shooting with a female shot in the 900 block of East Ninth St.,” Musgrove said. “I would estimate the time between hearing the shot and receiving the call to be around five-seven minutes.”
When he arrived at the scene, Musgrove encountered Logan.
“Mr. Logan was saying that his wife was shot during a drive-by,” Musgrove said. “Mr. Logan led us to the victim. Ms. Porter was laying outside on the ground and was saying that she could not breathe. (She) would not, or was unable to tell me who had shot her or provide any information as she was not very coherent.”
Musgrove said a .40 caliber shell casing was found not far from where Porter was lying.
Porter was treated by Mercy EMS and Ada firefighters for a single gunshot wound to the abdomen area. She was eventually taken to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City and admitted.
City of Ada Public Information Officer Lisa Bratcher said Porter had surgery at about 4 a.m. Wednesday. She was listed in critical condition.
While still at the scene, Musgrove questioned Logan. He told Musgrove he was outside with Porter when she was shot. He said he had had some trouble with a guy, but could not provide a last name or additional information, Musgrove said.
“Mr. Logan then changed his story and stated that a subject came running up to him and his wife from the east-southeast side of the house located directly to the south of their apartment and shot his wife,” Musgrove said. “Mr. Logan stated that this person was wearing a mask.”
Musgrove received permission from logan to enter the apartment to make sure no one else was inside and to retrieve a pack of cigarettes Logan was wanting.
“I then entered the apartment and noticed an empty nylon pistol case with an empty holster open and laying on the bed,” Musgrove said. “There was blood all over the floor. Mr. Logan had a large open laceration on his lower left leg that he said happened during a fall the previous night. The injury appeared to be recent as there was blood running down his leg and onto the top of his sandals. Mr. Logan insisted that the injury was old.”
Musgrove said he recovered a .40 caliber pistol from the scene.
Logan was arrested on suspicion of shooting with intent to kill, possession of a firearm after previous felony conviction and possession of marijuana. He was taken to Mercy Hospital Ada and treated for his wound before being taken to Pontotoc County Justice center.
