Four teens were arrested after an undercover agent said he found them in a stolen Jeep, and Oklahoma City police officers are on leave after firing their weapons.
Officers said one of the suspects had made a threat.
Oklahoma City Police said two of the teens were involved in the first carjacking on Sunday.
Two days later, on Tuesday, the pair were caught in a stolen car outside their northwest Oklahoma City apartment.
“The vehicle was in a parking lot here. Officers approached the vehicle when they saw it was a carjacking vehicle that week. The vehicle was occupied several times,” the Oklahoma City Police Department said. Captain Valerie Littlejohn said.
All of them face complaints of “unauthorized use of a motor vehicle” and “possession of a firearm while committing a felony.”
“During the chase, one of the suspects threatened the officer, at which point the officer opened fire on the suspect. no,” she said.
The officer who fired the gun is a 20-year veteran and is currently on paid leave while a full investigation is conducted.
A probable cause affidavit of one of the suspects, who turned 18 on Wednesday, said “three firearms were dumped at the complex” during a foot chase.
“There are several guns near the scene and where the suspect fled, and four people are in custody at this time,” Littlejohn said.
Police said two of the suspects involved in the first carjacking could face additional charges.
“There is one person that we believe has escaped the vehicle we are looking for or trying to get information to identify him,” she said.
Police said one of the suspects was bitten by a K-9 during the arrest, but no one was seriously injured.
