Two-county pursuit ends with gunfire near Marietta
LOVE COUNTY, Okla. (KTEN) — A suspect was shot after leading deputies on a two-county pursuit early Friday morning.
The chase started in Marshall County before Todd Lee Looney was cornered in Love County east of Marietta.
"The suspect rammed two police patrol vehicles after he was blocked in, attempting to injure or potentially kill officers and make it back out onto the roadway to flee, which prompted the officer to fire at the suspect in attempt to prevent the suspect from endangering any other citizens of our county," said Love County Undersheriff Andy Cumberledge in a Facebook post.
Looney, 52, was taken into custody facing charges of endangerment, reckless driving, driving under the influence, and assaulting an officer.
No law enforcement officers were injured.
The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation was called to investigate the officer-involved shooting.
