ADA, Okla. (AP) – Authorities say Ada police shot and wounded a man who allegedly struck a police officer with his vehicle.

Ada spokeswoman Lisa Bratcher says officers were responding to a disturbance call Wednesday when a man in an SUV struck the officer with his vehicle. Bratcher says the officer then opened fire on the suspect, striking him at least once in the shoulder.

She says the man then led police on a chase throughout Ada before pulling over and surrendering.

Bratcher tells The Ada News ( ) that the officer wasn't seriously hurt. The man, whose name has not yet been released, was taken to an Oklahoma City hospital.

Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Jessica Brown says agents from her agency are investigating.
