Man shot with own gun after assault and attempted kidnapping has been jailed

The Associated Press - January 14, 2018 10:55 am

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – A 55-year-old man who was shot with his own gun after wounding an employee at a central Oklahoma workplace is in jail after being released from a hospital.
Norman police say William Ray Adams was jailed without bail Friday on several complaints, including attempted kidnapping and assault and battery with a deadly weapon. It was unclear whether he had an attorney.
Authorities said Adams walked into Bergey Windpower in suburban Oklahoma City Wednesday afternoon, armed with a shotgun and wearing a gas mask, and planned to kidnap his wife.
Adams pointed the weapon at his wife, then shot a female co-worker who tried to intervene. A second co-worker grabbed Adams’ gun and shot him with the same weapon. Adams’ wife was unhurt.
The wounded co-worker remained hospitalized late Friday.
