Police searching for suspects in possible Howe shooting

Howe Police Chief Randy Liles on Tuesday said law enforcement are searching for a possible shooter or shooters in the area.

Liles said a man walked into the Howe Tote-A-Poke sometime Tuesday morning and alleged he had been shot at multiple times. LeFlore County Sheriff Rob Seale said no injuries were reported. 

Liles said that as law enforcement responded to that call, another call came in of a house in Howe at the corner of Railroad and Texas being struck by a "projectile."

Liles said at this time (11 a.m.) no suspects have been arrested and it remains an active case. 

He said multiple agencies responded to the scenes.

"Oklahoma Highway Patrol, Heavener, Wister, Sheriff's Office and Howe ... We were all on scene as soon as the call came in within two to three minutes," he said. 

Liles said the suspect vehicle in the case is described as an older model grey Nissan or Toyota with tinted windows. He said there may have been two suspects inside the vehicle.

He added that school district in Howe was notified. He said Howe is not in session yet but teachers are at the school. 

He said numerous stops have been made but the suspect or suspects are still unknown. 

"It's still open and we're still looking," he said. "If anyone has any information on it, we'd be glad to hear from them. Right now we don't have a lot to go on."

If you have any information, contact the Sheriff's Office at (918) 647-3426. Howe Police Department is dispatched through the Sheriff's Office.
