UPDATE: Stephens County officer-involved shooting suspect arrested
STEPHENS COUNTY, Okla. (KSWO) - The suspect in an officer-involved shooting in Stephens County has been found after an hours-long search.
Stephens County Sheriff Wayne McKinney said the suspect was found in Loco and taken to a hospital due to a gunshot wound he received during the initial shooting.
Earlier in the evening, there was a large police presence at the Grady Memorial Hospital in Chickasha Wednesday as law enforcement searched for the suspect.
They had pinged the suspect’s phone to the hospital parking lot. The hospital was put on lockdown with the Lighthorse Tactical Team on scene.
According to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, earlier in the day, Chickasaw Nation Lighthorse Police attempted to make a traffic stop east of Marlow on a suspected stolen vehicle. That led to a chase that ended just south of the Lawton/Duncan Y in a business parking lot.
The OSBI said the three people in the vehicle got into a shootout with police in the parking lot.
Two of the people from the vehicle were taken into custody for questioning while authorities are still looking for a third person.
This is a developing story and more information will be released as it becomes available.
