GS)--One person remains in critical condition after a shooting Monday night at Pine Manor Apartments. According to the Enid Police officials, officers responded to multiple 911 calls just after 10:00 Monday night reporting the shooting at the apartment complex. Officers arrived to find 25-year-old Joshua Hodge had been shot in the abdomen with a .22 caliber-rifle. Hodge was transported to Integris Bass Baptist Health Center and underwent surgery. He was later transported to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City and is in critical condition. According to authorities, before the shooting, 25-year-old Guston Dellenbaugh had come to the apartments to visit his ex-girlfriend, who is also Hodge’s sister. She said that Dellenbaugh appeared intoxicated and was acting erratically. Dellenbaugh allegedly pointed the .22 caliber AR at others outside before entering his ex-girlfriend’s apartment. Dellenbaugh was then confronted by Hodge, and during the confrontation, Dellenbaugh shot Hodge in the abdomen and fled the scene. Officers searched the area for Dellenbaugh but did not locate him. A witness told police that they saw a man get into a car at a nearby gas station. Dellenbaugh was located at St. Mary’s Regional Medical Center and taken into custody.
