BPD: Teen Hospitalized After Sunday Shooting Incident


The Bartlesville Police Department responds to an early morning shooting incident on Sunday that hospitalized a teenager.

According to Bartlesville Police Captain Jay Hastings, police responded to a residence in the 2800 Block of SE Sheridan Road in Bartlesville where a shooting had taken place. Capt. Hastings says a 17-year-old victim was transported to the hospital by a private vehicle before officers arrived on the scene. He says investigators were called to the scene and interviewed several witnesses who were outside gathered at a bonfire when the shooting occurred.

Capt. Hastings says it appeared that the shooting was accidental and both parties involved knew each other. He says Anthony Jon Wolf-Darby, 21, of Nowata, was placed under arrest and is initially being charged for reckless handling of a firearm. He says Wolf-Darby is cooperating with the investigation.

Wolf-Darby turned himself in to police. Capt. Hastings says Wolf-Darby claimed the gun was his and that he shot the victim accidentally. He says they are still trying to determine the relationship between the victim and the suspect and whether or not they were friends.

The victim was transported to a Tulsa hospital and underwent emergency surgery. This is still an active investigation.

Capt. Hastings says they are interviewing more witnesses. He says the victim is in stable condition at this time with another surgery scheduled on Monday.
