Oklahoma police say suspect opened fire on multiple semi trucks, narrowly missing a driver


Police are asking for public help in locating a suspect who they say opened fire on moving semi trucks.

The shootings occurred on the morning of December 31, in McClain County, Oklahoma.

Police say that a suspect pulled over on I-35 between the 75 and 86 mile marker and opened fire on two semi trucks, nearly hitting one of the truck drivers.

“Stepped out of his vehicle, fired multiple rounds into two semis that were passing by. Struck the first one, struck the second semi, narrowly missing that driver,” Steven McMahan with the McClain County Sheriff’s Office told local news outlet KFOR.

No injuries were reported.

After firing on the trucks, the shooter reportedly got back into his vehicle and fled the scene.

According to the Purcell Police Department, the suspect is described as a “white male with goatee, Black toboggan, and Black coat.” He was driving a dark grey Chrysler 300 at the time of the shooting.

Anyone who sees the suspect is to consider him to be armed and dangerous.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol, McClain County Sheriff’s Department, and the Purcell Police Department are investigating the incident. If you have information, you’re asked to call the 9-1-1 Communications Center at 405-527-4615 or the McClain County Sheriff’s Office at 405-527-2141.
