A woman was shot while stealing a Nazi flag flying outside an Oklahoma man’s home, authorities say.
The unidentified 26-year-old woman was at a party across the street around 3 a.m. Sunday when she was dared to swipe one of the two Nazi flags posted outside Alexander John Feaster’s house, said Garfield County Sheriff Jody Helm, according to the local TV affiliate Fox 4.
The woman grabbed the flag, and “On the way back [to the party], someone hollered, ‘Gun!’ ” Helm said. “She dropped the flag at the end of the driveway, and shots were fired.
“The female had multiple gunshot wounds,” the sheriff said.
The woman survived.
Feaster, 44 — who a neighbor said would walk around in public in all black with a swastika armband — was taken into custody and charged with shooting with the intent to kill and assault and battery with a deadly weapon, Fox said.
He shot the woman with a rifle — one of 15 guns recovered at his home, Helm said.
“His flags got stolen a couple times when he first put them out [a year ago], but nothing ever came of it,” the neighbor noted. “This is the first time it’s ever come to violence.”
Possible charges against the woman would be decided by the district attorney, the report said.
