Suspect in Oklahoma City trooper-involved chase and shooting arrested after manhunt
OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma City Police say they have arrested the third suspect who was involved in a chase with Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper late last week.
The 30-year-old man was arrested just after 10 p.m. Sunday night.
This incident began last Thursday evening when an OHP Trooper pursued a car in a traffic stop.
The driver refused to pull over and fled through metro neighborhoods.
During the pursuit someone inside the car shot several times at the trooper.
Oklahoma City Police were able to deploy stop sticks at Rockwell and Wilshire which the suspects struck and led to the suspects crashing their car a short distance from the intersections.
Two suspects were taken into custody at that time but one male suspect was able to get away.
Sunday just after 9 p.m. Oklahoma City Police spotted the suspect in an apartment complex near N.W. 82nd and Western Avenue.
They called for additional units and the suspect fled the apartment on foot into a wooded area along the railroad tracks.
The Oklahoma City Police helicopter was called to the scene while officers held a perimeter on foot, in vehicles and with K-9 officers.
The Air-1 pilot located the suspect running through a wooded area near Wilshire and Harvey Place just after 10 p.m.
Several officers responded to this location and the suspect was taken into custody.
Oklahoma City Police, Oklahoma Highway Patrol Troopers and Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Deputies all responded to the scene and assisted in the search.
