TECUMSEH, Okla. — An officer has died from his injuries after he was shot three times while pursuing a suspect during a traffic stop.
Officer Justin Terney, 22, pulled over a vehicle and asked a man to exit the car Sunday night. He began to search the man, but the suspect fled on foot into a wooded area, KOCO reported.
Terney deployed his TASER in an attempt to stop the suspect, but it had no effect. Police said the suspect opened fire on Terney and shot him three times. Terney returned fire, hitting the suspect four times, KFOR reported.
Assistant Police Chief J.R. Kidney told KJRH that the suspect may have fled because he had an outstanding warrant.
Terney and the suspect were transported to a local hospital where Terney died. The suspect is listed under an unknown condition, according to KOCO. Police confirmed he underwent surgery and is in the ICU.
