A Harrah man who walked to a home for help after being shot in a field Tuesday continues to recover from his wounds at an Oklahoma City hospital. As the shooting investigation continues, authorities have made arrests in the case.
Lincoln County Sheriff Charlie Dougherty said Christopher Don Canada, 35, suffered two, possibly three gunshot wounds, while in a field not far from a Lincoln County home along SH 62.
Canada walked to that home for help at daybreak after being shot sometime during the overnight hours.
Dougherty confirmed Friday that two arrests have been made in connection with this case, but no names were being released as the investigation continued.
At the onset of the probe, Dougherty said the motive for the shooting was possibly drug or gang-related.
Canada, who was taken by Medi Flight helicopter ambulance to OU Medical Center, remained hospitalized in fair condition late Friday, a hospital representative said.
The preliminary investigation indicates Canada was picked up by a man in Shawnee sometime early Tuesday morning before they drove to a remote field in Lincoln County “to talk,” the sheriff said.
When they got out of the vehicle, the suspect allegedly opened fire on Canada with a small caliber weapon and left him there, the sheriff said.
Deputies turned this case over to the district attorney’s Violent Crime and Drug Task Force and are now working them as the probe is ongoing.
