Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers shot two men to death and took a woman into custody after a suspect vehicle ran a roadblock following a bank robbery in Southeast Oklahoma.
Troopers set up the roadblock along State Highway 3 near Rattan in Pushmataha County after the 1 p.m. bank robbery in Wright City in nearby McCurtain County. Lt. George Brown, a spokesman for the patrol, said troopers spotted the suspect vehicle. The driver refused to stop and ran the roadblock.
Shots were fired, and two men in the fleeing vehicle were hit, troopers said. They later died from their injuries. A woman in the car was being held for questioning by the Pushmataha County sheriff’s office. She was not injured in the incident.
Authorities did not release the names of the suspects or the troopers involved.
Brown said the FBI, Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, Pushmataha County sheriff’s office and the patrol are jointly investigating the incident.
Brown said he does not know whether the suspects were armed or fired on troopers.
He said no troopers were injured.
