An Oklahoma mother was arrested for shooting a 31-year-old man she found inside her 16-year-old daughter's bedroom. 

Valerie Fowler, 34, was arrested for assault and battery with a deadly weapon after she shot an unidentified man inside her home, KFOR reports. 

"We can say that there was a 16-year-old girl that witnessed the shooting, as well as a young child," said Michael Lewis, Paoli police chief.

"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" said Larry Rhodes, Garvin County Sheriff.  "The woman called around 7:20 a.m. to report that she shot a male inside her house," Rhodes added.

Police found a gun inside Fowler's home and determined that the shooting took place there. The victim has so far not been identified. There is an ongoing investigation into what led up to the shooting, WCMH reported. 

"He was treated at the scene and transported to an Oklahoma City hospital by medical helicopter," Rhodes said. "His injuries were non life-threatening. It did appear to the chief and I that he suffered a gunshot wound to an extremity."

NBC News reports that the shooting victim suffered non-life threatening injuries.
