A Tecumseh woman now faces a formal felony charge in connection with a shooting incident that was investigated by sheriff’s deputies.
Ronda Robb Shelton, 51, is now charged in Pottawatomie County District Court with shooting with intent to kill.
Charges allege she “pointed, aimed and fired” with felonious intent a .45-caliber pistol and allegedly shot Wesley Lynn Tucker, 45, on Sept. 24.
Pottawatomie County sheriff’s deputies launched the investigation into this case after Tucker sought treatment in the St. Anthony Shawnee Hospital Emergency Room for a gunshot wound to the head, Sheriff Mike Booth said.
Tucker, who didn’t want deputies to probe what happened, later became involved in a scuffle with a deputy when he tried to leave the hospital despite needing treatment for his injuries, Booth said.
Tucker was later transferred to OU Medical Center, where he was treated and later released.
Booth said deputies discovered the man’s girlfriend was allegedly involved in the incident so deputies and tribal officers responded to a residence on Stevens Road, south of Waco Road, where the woman reportedly resided.
Shelton, 51, was later arrested on a shooting with intent to kill complaint.
Booth said deputies found blood on the back porch and throughout the house, with deputies recovering an M1911-style .45 caliber handgun in the living room.
Spent shell casings were found at the residence as well, Booth said, and deputies found bullet holes from the living room to the kitchen and also in the bedroom of that home.
If convicted in the case, Shelton could face up to life in prison.
Her next court date hasn’t yet been scheduled. Watch for updates.
