ARDMORE, Okla. (AP) – Police in Ardmore shot and killed a suspect who was wanted in a string of shootings including one that wounded two federal agents.

The Oklahoman reports that Henry Jackson was killed during a shootout around 9:30 p.m. Thursday.

Sgt. Ryan Hunnicutt says that earlier in the evening, police and federal agents who had been looking for Jackson, found him in a neighborhood in northeast Ardmore. Jackson opened fire, wounding two federal agents.
