CHICKASHA, Okla. - Officials have responded to an officer-involved shooting in Grady County.

The shooting was reported on Sunday afternoon in south Chickasha.

“Subject’s moving through the building. Randomly firing through the walls. (Sic) East side, west side, rounds coming out," an officer can be heard saying on the 911 call. “Shots fired! Large amount. Subject barricaded. We have one of our officers shot.”

Officials said two officers were serving a search warrant, when shots broke out between them and the suspect. Both officers were injured in the shooting.

One officer was airlifted to a local hospital. The conditions of both officers are unknown at this time.

Officials said the suspect was barricaded for several hours in a residence until he surrendered to police.
