OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Police in Oklahoma City say an officer shot a man near an elementary school that will be closed for the day because of the shooting.

Sgt. Ron Robertson says the man was shot about 4:30 a.m. Thursday near Wheeler Elementary School in southeast Oklahoma City and that the officer was not injured.

Capt. Bo Mathews says the wounded man was taken to a hospital. His condition was not known.
