Muskogee police are investigating after a shooting early this morning on the 2400 block of Court Street.
The victim told the Muskogee Police Department that he was leaving his residence at 5:30 a.m. in his 1980 Chevrolet pickup when shots were fired into his vehicle. One bullet struck the victim in the back of the head.
The victim lost control of his vehicle and was unable to call 911 due to the severity of the injury. The victim crashed into a parked car nearby.
The victim told police that an unknown man approached him just before he left his residence, asking for a cigarette. That subject was described as an approximately 6'0" black male close to 180 pounds. He was wearing dark colored pants and a dark colored, hooded sweatshirt.
Muskogee police are unsure at this time if the subject asking for a cigarette is a witness or a suspect.
The victim was transported to a Tulsa hospital and his condition is not currently known.
Anyone with information that could help Muskogee PD in their investigation can call them at 918-682-COPS.
