Oklahoma City police said two Oklahoma County officers were shot on the city’s southwest side.

The shooting happened at a residence near Southwest 78th Street and South Pennsylvania Avenue.

Deputies were taken to OU Health in Oklahoma City. One of the two deputies has died.

The second deputy who was shot is still being treated at the hospital.

Authorities said several officers were handing out foreclosure documents at the residence before the shooting.

Police’s search for the alleged suspect continued with a brief chase through the city’s southeast side.

The alleged suspect was driving a pickup truck with a boat attached.

The suspect abandoned his vehicle and was apprehended by authorities near Tinker Air Force Base.

In a Facebook post, Tinker Air Force Base is asking people to avoid the base’s front gate on South Air Depot Boulevard because of Monday’s suspicious pursuit.

The eastbound lanes of I-40 have reopened at this time.

This is a developing story.
