A mother has been arrested after she discovered and allegedly shot a 31-year-old man she found kissing her teenage daughter.

Valerie Fowler, 34, was arrested on a complaint of assault and battery with a deadly weapon after she shot Brandon Vail in her 16-year-old daughter’s bedroom on Monday.

Police in Oklahoma received a call from Ms Fowler on Monday at around 7:20am to report she had shot a man in her house.

“We arrived at one location where we found a 31-year-old male who had been shot. He was on the porch of a residence,” Garvin County Sheriff Larry Rhodes told KFor.com.

Mr Vail had been shot twice by the girl’s mother and was airlifted to an Oklahoma City hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
