OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Police in Oklahoma City say a 74-year-old man has been arrested on a murder complaint in the fatal shooting of his daughter.
Oklahoma County Jail records indicate Michael Henthorn was being held without bond Monday on a second-degree murder complaint. The records don’t indicate if Henthorn is represented by an attorney.
Investigators say the shooting occurred Friday night during a family argument at an Oklahoma City residence. Police say Henthorn retrieved a gun during the argument and was confronted by a male relative, who tried to intercede.
The men were struggling over the gun when it discharged and struck Henthorn’s daughter, 47-year-old Mischa Hill of Oklahoma City. Police say Hill wasn’t involved in the struggle over the gun when she was shot.
Hill was pronounced dead at a hospital.
