The Latest: Troopers hit in Oklahoma shootout leave hospital

The Associated Press - May 12, 2018 10:46 am

TALIHINA, Okla. (AP) – A spokesman for the Oklahoma Highway Patrol says four troopers have been treated and released from a hospital after they were struck by gunfire or shrapnel while serving a warrant on a man who later died.
Capt. Paul Timmons says the four troopers are expected to recover from their injuries.
Local authorities had asked for assistance in serving the warrant on the man early Friday. Timmons says the group was immediately met by gunfire, followed by a fire that quickly broke out in downtown Talihina, about 150 miles (240 kilometers) southeast of Oklahoma City.
Capt. Timmons says the man’s name hasn’t been released.
The fire appeared to be out Friday afternoon, but a body had not been recovered.
The blaze damaged several buildings.
