According to a report released by the Stillwater Police Department, officers were dispatched to a convenience store parking lot for reports of a shooting.

When officers arrived they found an adult male, 23-year-old Jared Roybal, in a van with an apparent gunshot wound to his neck.

After a preliminary investigation, officers believe the victim was shot near the 3200 block near E. Raintree and transported to the parking lot.

Roybal was transported to the scene by his brother who asked the store clerk to call for medical assistance.

The victim was initially transported to the Still Water Medical Center in critical condition before being transferred to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City.
