TULSA, Oklahoma – 

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol is investigating after a driver was shot and killed after leading troopers on a chase early Thursday morning.

Tulsa police say they received a call at around 3:30 a.m. that someone was firing shots from a car along I-44 west of Sheridan. As authorities were searching for the vehicle, OHP troopers spotted it and tried to pull the driver, 39-year-old Alan Wade Hutchinson, over. Hutchinson took off and a pursuit began.

According to investigators, OHP performed a tactical vehicle intervention stop on Hutchinson near 129th and 31st.
