Two men were shot Thursday afternoon outside a house on the west side of Muskogee, and police are looking for more information.
Police Lt. Bobby Lee identified the men as Stefan Alexander, 18, and Jamal Piercy, 24. Each was shot in the leg about 1:13 p.m. outside a house in the 500 block of North 17th Street.
Alexander and Piercy were transported to EASTAR Health System with what Lee described as non-life-threatening injuries. Officers at the shooting scene said one of the men was grazed in the leg by a bullet, and the other was wounded in the lower leg.
Although at least one man was handcuffed and taken from the scene in a police car, Lee said no arrests were made.
“Right now, the investigators are working on getting information and talking to witnesses,” he said.
Command Sgt. Maj. Michael Mahan said he found the two men lying on the ground near the back of the house.
Investigators placed about two dozen evidence cards in the home’s gravel driveway, each denoting shell casings left from the shooting. A red Oldsmobile was between the shell casings and the area of the yard where Alexander and Piercy were found.
The car’s back window appeared to have been struck by at least one bullet, indicating that some shots may have been fired from the rear of the house as well. No damage appeared to have been done to the front of the car.
Police are asking anyone who might have information about who shot Alexander and Piercy to call the Muskogee Police Department’s Investigation Division at (918) 683-8000 or Crime Stoppers (918) 682-2677.
