Terney pulled over a vehicle around 11:30 p.m. Sunday in Tecumseh, 35 miles southeast of Oklahoma City, police said. The suspect, who is reportedly a passenger, exited the vehicle and fled on foot as Terney checked with dispatchers to see if he had any outstanding warrants, according to Kidney.

Terney used a stun gun on the man but it was ineffective, Kidney said. The man then shot at Terney, who returned fire. Both men were wounded and paramedics rushed them to OU Medical Center.

Kidney said Terney, who graduated from police academy last summer, was shot in the “lower extremities.” He was hit three times, Fox 25 reported.

He said authorities are still working to confirm the identity of the suspect, who was also shot multiple times.

“If it is who we think this person is, there’s a possibility that he has some warrants,” Kidney said. “That could be the reason that he ran.”

“We extend our most heartfelt condolences to the family of Officer Terney & the TPD. We are deeply saddened at the tragic loss.” 

REST IN PEACE OFFICER TERNEY. WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE.
