Officer Justin Terney

TECUMSEH, Okla. (AP) – Police say a 22-year-old Oklahoma officer has died after a shootout during a traffic stop.

Tecumseh Assistant Police Chief J.R. Kidney says officer Justin Terney died Monday morning after undergoing surgery overnight.

The suspect in Terney’s death also was struck by gunfire. Kidney says that man remains hospitalized for his wounds.

Police say the traffic stop happened at about 11:30 p.m. Sunday in Tecumseh, 35 miles southeast of Oklahoma City. Tecumseh police say the suspect ran away from the officer after the traffic stop and later opened fire after the officer used a stun gun.

Kidney says authorities are working to identify the suspect, but believe he may have fled because he had an outstanding warrant. He says that man is in intensive care for his gunshot wounds.
