Mom arrested for shooting 31-year-old man she found in teen daughter’s bedroom


PAOLI, OK (WCMH) — Police say the woman was arrested because she shot the man she found in her 16-year-old daughter’s bedroom.

According to KFOR, Valerie Fowler, 34, was arrested and charged with assault and battery with a deadly weapon.

On Monday, police received two separate 911 calls in regards to a shooting. On the first call police, found the man on the porch of a residence suffering from a gunshot wound.

But according to police, the shooting happened at another home.

“The woman called around 7:20 a.m. to report that she shot a male inside her house,” Larry Rhodes, Garvin County Sheriff told KFOR.

Investigators are still trying to determine what led up to the shooting and the relationship between Fowler and the man.

The man, who has not been identified, suffered non-life threatening injuries in the shooting.
