The Latest: Authorities say 3rd child hurt in police shooting

The Associated Press - April 27, 2019 7:33 am

HUGO, Okla. (AP) – Authorities in Oklahoma say three children were wounded in a police shooting when an officer fired at a man who was suspected of robbing a restaurant.
Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Brook Arbeitman says gunfire broke out on Friday when detectives with the Hugo Police Department in southeastern Oklahoma were trying to approach a suspect, 21-year-old William Devaughn Smith.
Arbeitman says Smith was in a truck with four children. The agency initially said two children were shot but later learned a third child was shot.
Officials did not immediately release the names, ages, or conditions of the children.
Arbeitman says it’s not clear if Smith fired at police or what prompted the shooting. He was treated and released from a hospital in Paris, Texas, and booked into jail there.
