May 19—Norman police are investigating two suspects in a May 8 shooting on West Main Street that sent one person to the hospital.
Deontra Dukes, 35, and Nia Miles, 33, turned themselves into authorities this week, according to a department spokesperson. Both had warrants for their arrest, court records show.
Investigators are pursuing charges of a assault and battery with a deadly weapon and felonious pointing of a firearm against Dukes, and a charge of assault and battery with a deadly weapon against Miles, records show.
