There aren’t a lot of details available. Duncan is about 90 minutes south of Oklahoma City. The local police department doesn’t appear to have a Twitter account and the county sheriff’s office’s Twitter account is secured and not open to the public. The Duncan Banner, the local newspaper, has most of the available details:
Duncan Police Department have confirmed the suspect in this morning’s Walmart shooting is dead. It is confirmed three are dead, including the suspect.
District Attorney Jason Hicks is on the scene. He has confirmed the scene is contained and this is not an active shooter situation anymore.
The Duncan Banner is meeting with DPD in 15 to 20 minutes for a media update.
At approximately 9:54 a.m. calls on the police scanner indicated a shooting at Walmart with three down and suspect still at large. The suspect, according to DPD, is now dead.
Red River Tech is on lock down. Duncan Public Schools is on lock down as well. According to Tom Deighan with Duncan Public Schools, schools are on lockdown and school will continue as normal inside. The district says parents should not try to pick up their child at this time. Children will not be released because of the lockdown protocol.
It is unclear at this time how severe the injuries of the victims are. The Banner will update more as information becomes available. Please use caution when traveling in this area and be aware of law enforcement as they work to secure the scene.
The shooting has made the national cable news, which is how I heard about it, but there doesn’t appear to be video or even large scale local TV news coverage because of where Duncan is. As is almost always the case with these types of events, information is going to come out in fits and starts and will likely be adjusted and revised as new, better, and more accurate information becomes available.
