Deputies investigated what led to a man being shot on an elderly woman’s property in Wagoner County.

The shooting happened in the Whitehorn Cove area, about 11 miles north of Wagoner.

Sheriff Chris Elliott said the man who was shot is expected to survive, but said they were waiting to learn more about why the victim was on the property in the first place.

"Her cameras went off this morning, she looked into her cameras, looked out on her front porch and she saw an individual on her front porch that she's never seen before and he's wandering around out there," Sheriff Elliott said.

The Sheriff said just after 6 in the morning, a 74-year-old woman who lives alone reported someone on the property who she didn't know.

The Sheriff said she called her son-in-law who lives next door for help, who showed up to the house armed with a gun.

Deputies said the son-in-law confronted the man, there was an altercation and the son-in-law ended up shooting the man twice.

Sheriff Elliott said the victim was taken to a hospital to be treated for his injuries.

He said they weren't sure what type of confrontation occurred before the shooting, or why the man was on the woman’s property.

The Wagoner County Sheriff's Office planned to watch surveillance video from the house to help with the investigation, "we have a lot of data to look at. We have people to interview, but at this time we are not effecting arrest," said Sheriff Elliott.

Sheriff Elliott said they believe the man who was shot lived in that same area of Wagoner County.
