STILLWATER, Okla. (KOKH) – A Stillwater man is behind bars after firing a gun at his girlfriend and a juvenile on Tuesday.

Officials responded to an apartment near South Walnut Street and West 22nd Avenue in reference to a domestic disturbance.

A woman told police her boyfriend, 18-year-old Jacob Louis Scott, was possibly on his way to her apartment.

When police arrived, they reported gunshots being fired from the same area.

Officers determined Scott had gotten to the apartment before them.

According to witnesses, Scott was arguing with his girlfriend when he pulled out a handgun and pointed it at her and one of her juvenile family members.

Reports say Scott fired the gun in their general direction and fired several other shots into the air as he was escaping the scene in his car.

Around 2:24 p.m., officers found Scott in a parking lot with a loaded AR-15 in his lap.

Scott was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon, possession of a firearm after a felony juvenile adjudication, and possession of Xanax with intent to distribute.

Authorities determined Scott had come to the apartment to shoot his girlfriend’s father.
