BREAKING: 2 Tulsa Officers Shot, Shooter On The Loose

Tulsa, OK – Two Tulsa police officers were shot early on Monday morning and police are searching for the gunman.

UPDATE: The suspect has been captured.

The incident occurred at about 3:30 a.m. on Jun 29 at 21st and Memorial, KOKH reported.

Tulsa police said that officers stopped the suspect’s vehicle for a traffic violation and the suspect, later identified as David Ware, opened fire on them, KOKI reported.

Police said Ware fled after shooting the officers, and a manhunt is underway.

They said Ware should be considered “armed and dangerous,” KOKI reported.

“We advise anybody in this area to please be very aware of what’s going on at their house, around their house, in their backyard,” an officer told KOKI. “He clearly has no problem shooting at police officers so he will have no problem shooting at civilians as well.”

Both wounded officers were transported to the hospital and taken into surgery.

Police sources said that one of the wounded was a sergeant, and the other graduated from the police academy less than a year ago, according to KOKI.

Both officers are in critical condition.

Tulsa police have asked people to avoid the area while the search for Ware is conducted, KOKI reported.
