Muskogee police continued to search Tuesday afternoon for an armed gunman who fled from a westside convenience store into a nearby neighborhood following an altercation.

Deputy Chief Reggie Cotton said police were "going to stay out here until we get him." He described the investigation as "very fluid" and "active," and there is a lot of information that remains unknown.

Bystanders said a woman was shot in the leg and transported by private vehicle to get medical care.
