MUSKOGEE, Okla. (AP) - Prosecutors have filed charges against a 26-year-old man accusing him of shooting two pregnant women over the weekend near Muskogee.

The Tulsa World reports (https://bit.ly/1nJ6A7r ) Donte Lamonte Edwards is charged with shooting with intent to kill in an incident that wounded two women Sunday outside of a bar.

Court records show one woman is eight months pregnant and the other is seven weeks pregnant.

Muskogee County Sheriff Charles Pearson says the women were taken to a local hospital and are expected to be OK.

Pearson says Edwards and the victims had been arguing outside of the bar.

The county’s jail says it doesn’t know if Edwards has been arrested yet.

Edwards did not immediately return a message left Thursday on the voicemail of a phone number listed in his name.
