The Ardmore Police Department has reportedly identified a suspect in a May 17 shooting incident.

Ardmore police began investigating after making contact with an individual at around 1:12 a.m. on May 17 who stated that she had been shot at while driving in the 1000 block of Northeast 10th Street.

Through further investigation, police were able to identify the suspect as a 25-year-old female from Ardmore, according to a press release from the Ardmore Police Investigation Division. The suspect’s identify has not been released at this time and further investigation is being conducted.

The suspect was interviewed and released without arrest and recommendations will be sent to the district attorney’s office once the investigation is complete.
