Update: Two Oklahoma City officers recovering after traffic stop leads to shooting
UPDATED: An Oklahoma City police officer is recovering after being shot by a man during a traffic stop.
Just before 11 p.m. on Monday, Sgt. Jason Burgess stopped a vehicle near N.W. 12th St. and Rockwell Ave.
Sgt. Burgess walked up to the car and spoke with the three people inside the vehicle.
After running their information, Sgt. Burgess learned that the driver, 24-year-old Renarbrey Jones, and one of the passengers, 32-year-old Roger Gurley, Jr., had outstanding warrants.
At that point, officials say Sgt. Burgess called for backup.
When other patrol units arrived, they took Jones into custody.
As she was being handcuffed, officers say 24-year-old Lincoln Price got out of the car, pulled out a semi-automatic weapon and began shooting at police.
“As they were approaching the vehicle, that’s when the shooter exited his vehicle and began shooting at officers immediately,” said Capt. Paco Balderrama, with the Oklahoma City Police Department.
Sgt. Burgesswas shot in the leg and another officer, Sgt. Jonathan Davis, suffered a hand and finger injury.
The bullets also damaged two police cars.
Officers returned fire and killed Price.
Sgt. Burgess was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he was treated and released.
Sgt. Davis was treated at the scene.
Gurley and Jones were both taken into custody.
All four officers will be placed on routine administrative leave pending a full investigation.
