A 22-year-old police officer has been critically wounded in a shootout with a man who fled a traffic stop in central Oklahoma, police said Monday.
Tecumseh Assistant Police Chief J.R. Kidney said officer Justin Terney died Monday morning after undergoing surgery overnight.
Terney pulled over a vehicle around 11:30 p.m. Sunday in Tecumseh, 35 miles southeast of Oklahoma City, police said. Terney then chased the unidentified driver and was able to detain him briefly using a stun gun to subdue him.
A woman who was driving the auto that the suspect was in is now in custody.
Authorities say Shepard was also struck by gunfire and remains hospitalized.
The man, who has not been positively identified, shot Terney and Terney returned fire, Kidney told reporters outside OU Medical Center on Monday morning.
"Our departments need all the prayers we can get at this point", Kidney said.
Terney underwent surgery for three gunshot wounds but later died.
"It makes us remember and realize how risky being in law enforcement is these days", Fallin said.
Oklahoma Gov. Mary Falling expressed condolences to Turney's family and said that flags would be flown at half-mast the day of his funeral.
Dillon Degraffenreid, 21, a paramedic in Tecumseh who worked with Terney, said he stayed by Terney's side after he was shot and was part of the group that escorted his body to his hometown. Police say the suspected shooter was also wounded and taken to a hospital. Terney responded by opening fire on the suspect, shooting him four times.
The Oklahoma City Police Department released a statement regarding Terney's death.
