HUGO — Quin Jacobs is not yet sure how he will explain to his children why the police shot into the vehicle they were in.

On Monday, Jacobs did not even have those answers for himself.

"These kids, they don't know no better," Jacobs said. "I was telling them they're (the police) supposed to be there to protect and serve. It's kind of hard to tell them — they know who did it — but why they did it, because I don't know."

Three of Jacobs’ children — La’Kvionn, 5, Asia, 4, and Daidriona, 1 — were injured Friday during an officer-involved shooting in Hugo, in southeastern Oklahoma.
