Hydro man held on $500,000 bond for attempt to shoot ex-wife, others

A Hydro man is in jail on $500,000 bond and faces a potential life sentence in prison for an alleged alcohol-fueled domestic incident with his ex-wife that escalated to him repeatedly pulling the trigger of a gun at her and others.

Timothy Daniel Kitson, 50, made his initial appearance Thursday in Caddo County District Court where he was charged with felony counts of domestic assault and battery with dangerous weapon, assault and battery with dangerous weapon, shooting with intent to kill, first-degree burglary, and possession of a firearm after former felony conviction, court records indicate.

Kitson was arrested Tuesday night following the incident, 3 miles east of Hydro in Caddo County.

Sheriff’s Deputy Robert Smith was called around 11 p.m. to the home at 6100 Oklahoma 66 on the report that people in the home were wrestling Kitson in attempt to disarm him. According to the probable cause affidavit, during the wrestling, shots were fired. He was taken into custody by Hydro police.

Hydro Police Chief Dustin Carney said the department had been called around 11 a.m. by Kitson’s ex-wife’s mother due to the threat from Kitson being in the house with a gun. The ex-wife then called while Carney was en route and said that Kitson had come into the home while making threats and had fired multiple shots into the home. Two men began fighting Kitson to disarm him.

When Carney arrived, the ex-wife said the men got the gun away from Kitson and were keeping him in the master bathroom. He was taken into custody and put into a police car.
