A shooting in Skiatook on Wednesday, left neighbors on edge and investigators searching for clues. It happened around 2:00 a.m. in the Village Park subdivision.
Police say Ken Cooper, 83, was taken to the hospital around 2:15 a.m. Wednesday morning, after being shot in the abdomen, inside his home. It appears that an intruder came into Cooper's house and shot him. Police say there were no signs of forced entry.
Investigators also say, it does not look like anything was taken from the home.
Neighbors who spoke with KTUL say the normally quiet subdivision is the last place they would expect something like this to happen.
"Nothing bad -- crazy, ever really happens in Skiatook and for it to happen, and in a nice neighborhood like this, it's just really, really weird," said neighborhood resident, Sarah Ramirez.
Police say the town has not seen a shooting since 2011.
They believe the homeowner and intruder in this case, knew each other.
Skiatook Police Detective, Jerry Bullard told KTUL, a stolen vehicle was recovered outside city limits. They believe that car is, in some way, connected to the shooting. It was impounded and processed for evidence Wednesday afternoon.
The victim is recovering in a Tulsa hospital. His condition is unknown at this time.
