    SI)--A 32-year-old Enid man who was shot early Tuesday is refusing to cooperate with an Enid Police Department investigation into the incident. Capt. Tim Jacobi said officers responded at 3:10 a.m. Tuesday to the 1000 block of North Adams in regard to a man with a gunshot wound to the back. The man was transported from the scene by Life EMS to St. Mary's Regional Medical Center for treatment of the non-life threatening wound. According to Jacobi, investigators learned the victim and shooter were close acquaintances. During the investigation, detectives served a search warrant Tuesday morning at a home in the 200 block of East Hemlock. According to Enid News and Eagle, detectives arrested a woman at the residence, 27-year-old Brooke Nicole Rex, on complaints of possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia, three outstanding county arrest warrants and four municipal warrants. However, Jacobi noted the arrest was unrelated to the shooting. The captain said the victim left the hospital Tuesday morning against the wishes of hospital staff. He said the man later returned to the hospital and was treated and released. “The victim was uncooperative with investigators and asked that the investigation be terminated,” Jacobi said. He reportedly told investigators the shooting "appeared to be a result of a dispute amongst friends." Because no arrests were made, police are not releasing the name of the suspected shooter. The name of the victim also is being withheld.

    LF)--It's been a busy week for firefighters, including here in Enid. There were four fires that Enid firefighters responded to this week. Fortunately, there were no injuries in any of the fires. Tuesday there was a fire in the back of Applebee's on West Garriott that Enid Fire Marshall Ken Helms says is being investigated as arson. According to Enid News and Eagle, Wednesday afternoon there was a structural fire at 2 Rolling Oaks Drive that caused about $5,000 in damage. Helms said that fire was either caused by spontaneous combustion from rags and other material used by a worker putting oil stain on some decking or lumber material, or it was caused by a discarded cigarette. Thursday morning there were two fires. The first, at 701 Windmeer, was caused by an extension cord on the outside of a home. There was only $5,000 damage to the exterior of the home. The second fire Thursday was minor. Helms said that fire at 2607 North 5th was likely started by discarded smoking materials. A neighbor had put out the fire by the time firefighters arrived. Estimated damage was several hundred dollars.

    TC)--With rain in the forecast for the Enid area this weekend organizers opted to cancel the Tour de Trykes Criterium. “We are disappointed that we are going to have to cancel the criterium,” said Tim DeClerk, with Enid Noon AMBUCS, sponsor of the event. “But the bright side is we know the rain is desperately needed in western Oklahoma.” The criterium has been held in Enid eight times. The bicycle race is held on a closed course through downtown Enid and has allowed U.S. Cycling Association-licensed riders to compete for cash prizes. Tour de Trykes Criterium officials are busy now just contacting everyone about the cancellation and making immediate arrangements. AMBUCS will meet with its promoter and the cycling organization to try to work out a future date for this year’s event, but DeClerk said he does not know if it will happen or when they will know an answer. Criterium raises money for AMBUCS projects, which emphasize mobility for people whom mobility is difficult. A designated project has been AmTrykes, or tricycle-like vehicles specially adapted to allow those with mobility difficulties to be able to ride more easily.
