Police say one person was sent to the hospital with gunshot wounds and another was detained following a shooting Wednesday.

The Oklahoma City Police Department confirms that officers were called to an assault with a deadly weapon call at 2245 NW 12 Street. Officers later learned that the call was a shooting. A man was found in the front yard of the home suffering from gunshot wounds to both legs.

The man told police he was attacked at the home. A second man was located just two blocks from the scene. That man admitted to pulling the trigger but stated he was attacked and shot in self defense.

Police investigated the scene for approximately three hours. Both men will be interviewed to determine what exactly happened at the home.
