Tecumseh officer shot while chasing suspect

Justin Terney, a rookie with the Tecumseh Police Department, passed away around 9 a.m. on Monday (March 27), reported affiliate KFOR.

The young officer shot the fleeing suspect with a taser but the gun had no effect on him, police say. The officer, identified in local media outlets as Justin Terney, underwent surgery and was listed in critical condition. As dispatchers were telling Terney that it appeared the man had an active warrant for his arrest, the man ran from the stopped vehicle and toward nearby woods, Kidney said.

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. The suspected shooter was also struck by gunfire.

"We are deeply saddened at the tragic loss of Officer Terney, who was senselessly shot to death late last night", a spokesman for the department said, according to the Daily Mail.




Terney used a stun gun on the man but it was ineffective, Kidney said.

A woman who was driving the auto the suspect was in is also in custody. He says that man is in intensive care for his gunshot wounds. During the initial stop, police say Shepard was uncooperative and continually lied about his identity.

The officer and suspect were transported to Oklahoma University Trauma Center in Oklahoma City. He returned fire, hitting the suspect four times.

Oklahoma City Police Department issued a statement expressing their "most heartfelt condolences" to the family of Terney.
