Posted: Updated:

MUSKOGEE, Okla. (AP) - Authorities say a Muskogee man is hospitalized after being shot by a Muskogee police officer while trying to grab another officer's gun.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says 34-year-old Thomas Estes was shot by the officer shortly after noon Thursday.

The OSBI says the incident began when an officer stopped a vehicle that had been reported stolen. Investigators say Estes was a passenger in the vehicle and when he got out he grabbed for the officer's gun and was shot by another officer at the scene.

Estes was taken to a Muskogee hospital and later transferred to a hospital in Tulsa. His condition was not released.

The name of the officer was not released.

The OSBI says it was asked by Muskogee police to investigate the shooting.
