      Woman shot during robbery attempt

      The McClain County Sheriff's Office has arrested Michael Burell, 25, after an attempted robbery led to the shooting of a woman.

      About 9:00 a.m. Saturday morning an Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper came upon two men fighting on Adkins Hill Rd. a half mile east of Interstate-35 in Goldsby.

      The trooper stopped the fight and during an interview of the participants learned Burell had attempted a robbery and the woman had been accidentally shot.

      The woman was taken to the hospital where she is in intensive care.

      Burell was taken to the McClain County Detention Center and booked on a charge of possession of a controlled dangerous substance.
