WAGONER, Okla. — A Wagoner man is still in the hospital after the FBI says two Wagoner police officers shot him during a domestic call.

The two officers responded to NE 1st St. and Proctor Ave. around three Wednesday morning.

The FBI says when they arrived a man at the home had a weapon and shot him "for their safety, and possibly the lives of others."

Most residents in the area say they didn’t hear anything since they were sleeping but Shantal Jones says gunshots woke up her mom.

“I just looked out and I had seen lined all the way down the block to the end here where the road cuts off. There was all police cars," Jones said. "I was like ‘basically the police are here and on it’ so I didn’t feel too stressed about (the situation). I went back to lay back down.”

Jones says after a few hours law enforcement put up crime scene tape from her house to where the shooting took place.

She has lived here for about three months and was surprised to learn what had happened.

“It’s relatively quiet. We haven’t had anything go on since I’ve been here like this is the most excitement that this town has seen since I’ve been here and that I’ve even known of beside maybe an ambulance going past,” Jones said.

She’s thankful no one else was hurt since many families live in the area.

The person who was shot was taken to the hospital, but the FBI hasn't identified the person or given an update on their condition.

No officers were injured.

The FBI is handling the investigation with the assistance of the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation since this happened on tribal land and both the officers involved are Native American.
