A Shawnee man suffered a gunshot wound to his torso early Sunday morning near Dunbar and Bell streets, and police are trying to identify a suspect in the gang-related incident.

A Shawnee police report shows Marland Tramble, 30, was shot in his lower right side and the bullet ruptured his kidney and liver before exiting through his back.

Tramble was bleeding internally and lost a lot of blood, the report said, so he was airlifted from Unity Health Center to an Oklahoma City hospital. It was unknown if he remained hospitalized Tuesday, and if so, where. His condition was not known.

A Shawnee police report shows Marland Tramble, 30, was shot in his lower right side and the bullet ruptured his kidney and liver before exiting through his back.
Tramble was bleeding internally and lost a lot of blood, the report said, so he was airlifted from Unity Health Center to an Oklahoma City hospital. It was unknown if he remained hospitalized Tuesday, and if so, where. His condition was not known.
According to Cpl. Shawn Parsons’ police report, the shooting occurred about 12:03 a.m. Sunday when Tramble and another man were walking east on Dunbar Street. When they passed the east alley of Bell Street, they encountered a man yelling at them from the north side of Dunbar Street, the report said.
The witness told officers several shots were fired and he fell to the ground. He told police Tramble started running back and forth in the roadway before yelling out that he had been hit by gunfire. The witness’ girlfriend happened to drive by and took him and Tramble to the hospital, the report shows.
Shawnee officers canvassed the crime scene area and found two casings from a 9mm pistol. The suspect in this case is listed as a man with the alias name “Cowboy.” He is reported to be from Midwest City and is said to be affiliated with the Blood gang, the report shows.
Shortly after the shooting, an anonymous caller told dispatchers that “Cowboy” was at a home on South Union Street, but the home was empty when police arrived.
The case remains under investigation by Shawnee detectives.
