SENTINEL, Okla. (AP) – The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says a suspect has been arrested in connection with a bomb threat in Sentinel that led to the shooting and wounding of the town’s police chief.

The OSBI says the suspect was arrested Tuesday on a complaint of making a bomb threat. Formal charges have not been filed.

Authorities initially focused on another man and Police Chief Louis Ross was shot in the chest and arm after entering the man’s home last Thursday. The man was not arrested after investigators determined he did not realize it was police entering his home and that the threat did not come from any of the phones in the home.

Ross was wearing a bullet-proof vest and he was treated at an area hospital and released.
