Authorities say the third of three suspects in the shooting of an Oklahoma police officer has been arrested in southeast Kansas.

The Montgomery County Sheriff’s office says Alejandro Garcia was captured Friday near Liberty, Kansas.

The search for Garcia began Thursday evening when he fled after crashing a car that officials say he stole near the Kansas border.

The sheriff’s office brief news release provided no other details of Garcia’s capture.

Authorities say Garcia and two others shot an Oologah police officer during a Thursday night chase that began in Rogers County, Oklahoma. The officer’s condition was not immediately available Friday.

Police arrested the two other suspects – 23-year-old Cesar Rios and 20-year-old Roxanna Mendoza – Thursday night in South Coffeyville, just south of the Kansas border.
