TULSA, Okla. - Tulsa police have arrested a suspect they say fired shots at officers.
Investigators said it all started after a woman told them two men pulled a gun and forced her out of her vehicle near West 55th Street and Southwest Boulevard. The woman told police she and a friend had been driving the men to an unknown address when they stole the car.
Police officers said they later spotted the vehicle near 200 North Gilcrease Museum Road and tried to pull over the driver, but the driver did not pull over, prompting a pursuit.
During the pursuit, police said someone fired multiple rounds at the pursuing officer, and an officer reportedly fired twice at the suspects as they fled northbound on foot, abandoning the car.
One suspect, later identified as Brandon Mendinghall, 23, was brought into police custody with the help of the police helicopter.
Police said they believe Mendinghall was driving the car, while the other suspect opened fire.
Police identified the other suspect as 18-year-old Michael Newlin. Newlin was arrested Saturday morning.
The officer who opened fire has been placed on administrative leave.
