Larry Cawthon, 56, told police four men abducted him and shot him in the stomach Tuesday morning before dumping him in southwest Pottawatomie County. In a 911 call Cawthon made from his cell phone he said he had kept in his boot, he told a dispatcher, "I've just been shot.” Cawthon said he was shot "in the belly.” When asked where he was, he replied, "I don't have a clue.” He also said, "I was at work. ... A few guys came out where I work at.” Cawthon then struggles to talk and breathe. Police tracked his cell phone to an area about 10 miles south of Tecumseh, where law officers found him in an open field. He was flown to OU Medical Center. Cawthon's condition has been upgraded from critical to serious, hospital spokeswoman Natalie Scott said. Scott said Cawthon's family does not want to be interviewed and Cawthon does not want to comment about the incident.
