A car chase led to a police shooting Tuesday in Delaware County, Okla.
Oklahoma authorities are investigating a case in which a suspect was tailed by police during a chase that began in McDonald County, Mo., before county deputies fired shots at the suspect.
Deputies began chasing Douglas Brown, 46, after the suspect fled in his vehicle from McDonald County authorities. The pursuit continued into Delaware County, and in the town of Grove, Brown’s vehicle hit a McDonald County deputy’s vehicle, according to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation.
Two deputies from McDonald County fired their guns at the suspect’s vehicle, but no one was injured in the shooting, according to Oklahoma authorities.
Brown then drove back to Missouri, where he was eventually arrested by state police, according to a report released by police.
After Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation agents deliver a detailed report on the shooting to the Delaware County District Attorney, he will decide whether or not the shooting was justified, according to a statement released Wednesday by the bureau.
