Or at least, that’s the impression we’d like to give:
A man and a horse were shot in a Thursday night drive-by shooting in northeast Oklahoma City.
About 10:20 p.m., Frederick Leon Jackson, of Spencer, and Carlos Romon Miles, of Jones, were riding their horses back from a rodeo arena, off NE 50 and Post Road, when they stopped in front of a church off NE 41 to smoke a cigarette.
Miles told police he saw a red car approach and someone in the car started shooting as the car passed by, according to a police report.
Jackson was hospitalized with a bullet wound to the calf; his horse caught a round in the upper right shoulder.
This is a pretty remote area — the Spencer post office actually delivers the mail this far out — and definitely not the sort of place you’d tend to expect a drive-by shooting. I suspect the occupants of the vehicle were, um, somewhat impaired at the time.
