The Altus Police Department 911 dispatch received a call at 1:45 a.m. Tuesday, that someone was shooting at a home.

Police responded to the call at the 500 block of East Sutherland Avenue.

Upon arrival, the officers observed the home riddled with gunfire and also found several shell casings, police said.

“We believe the suspect was standing in the alley behind the residence while shooting at the house,” said Altus Police Chief Tim Murphy.

The homeowners surveillance video depicts a a black male wearing a white T-shirt in the alley running eastbound, immediately after the shots were fired, he said.

“By seeing the video, I believe the two were mad and fighting — attempting to injure or kill one another,” said the homeowner.

The Altus police currently have no suspects, but said the shooting may be gang-related and are continuing the investigation.

Murphy asked anyone with information to call Crimestoppers 580-482-8477 or 482-tips.
