MARLOW, Okla. (AP) -- Authorities say a teenager shot his mother's estranged husband in the face when the Duncan man showed up at their home near Marlow.
Stephens County Assistant District Attorney Dennis Gay says the woman had been granted a protective order against the shooting victim, whose name wasn't released yesterday.
Gay said police weren't sure what led the 15-year-old boy to believe his mother was in danger but he told police he fired on the man to protect her.
The man was flown by helicopter to Integris Baptist Medical Center and then taken to OU Medical Center in serious condition Monday night.
Officials at the Stephens County Sheriff's Department and Marlow police refused to answer questions about the incident.
