    Lawton, OK Policeman Wounded in Gunfight

    A Lawton, OK policeman was wounded yesterday while responding to a burglary or home invasion in progress. One of the two perps was also wounded. Both perps were captured. That part of Lawton is a very high crime area.

    A responding officer fired three rounds at a perp through the windshield of his cruiser. The wounded policeman is doing well.

    Officer shot; 2 in custody

    I hope and pray he'll continue to do well and get back to normal very soon. Police aren't given nearly enough credit for what they do on a daily basis.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    From the position of the bullet holes Officer Weatherly is lucky to be alive, hope he makes a full recovery and the dirtbags receive a long stay in the grey bar hotel.

    That's the truth. They are an easy target for criticism but they don't get anywhere near enough credit for the day to day job that they do. It's about as thankless a profession as there is, IMO.

    Here's to hoping he makes a full and complete recovery!

    Yep, lived in that part of Lawton twice, while attending two different Arty courses at Fort Sill. Real crap hole, but cheap rents (which means a lot on a military payroll). Almost had my Harley ripped off a couple of times....................................had it chained down, so to speak.

    Very glad to know that the Peace Officer will be OK!

    From the story he fired 3 rounds thru his windshield so those were outgoing rounds,since there are only 3 rounds in the windshield I assume he was shot exiting his cruiser then reentered and fired at the perps

    The wounded policeman, Sgt. Weatherly, did not fire those rounds. LPD Sgt. Craig Lyman fired three rounds through the windshield of his cruiser as he arrived on the scene. It is not known which officer wounded the perp. Both officers are on administrative leave. Sgt. Weatherly has been released from the hospital and is doing well.
