Man sent to hospital after being shot by Norman Police

NORMAN, Okla._New information on a police chase in Norman that resulted in the suspect being shot. 


Jimmie Wheeler suffered non-life threatening injuries when he was shot in the torso Saturday afternoon.  


It all started with a 911 call early Saturday afternoon about a suspicious vehicle -- but when police arrived, the car took off. Officers say the suspect led them on a chase all the way into the next county before crashing at a T-intersection. 


The suspect was shot a short time later. Officials haven't said what happened that made gunfire necessary, but the suspect was transported to OU Medical Center from the scene.  


The names of the two officers involved in the shooting have not been released.
