Two Oklahoma officers were wounded Sunday night when a man opened fire on them with an AK-47, police said.
The two Wellston officers suffered non-life threatening wounds after they were called to a reported shooting around 6:30 p.m., according to Lincoln County emergency officials.
A suspect escaped after fleeing the scene roughly 35 miles northeast of Oklahoma City in a stolen Lincoln Town Car, officials said. Police said they captured one other suspect following the shooting.
“We got three of our units there, and they started trying to gather information when a gentleman came out with an AK-47 and just opened fire on everybody,” Lincoln County Sheriff Charlie Dougherty told reporters at the scene.

Greensburg icon J. Edward Hutchinson wants to make a fitting exit after more than six decades as fire chief.
“I want to get on a horse and ride off like John Wayne into the sunset, and wave,” said Hutchinson, who will turn 95 in November. “I want a little humor.”
The man popularly known as “Hutch” will not run for a 22nd term, leaving the fire department to find another leader for the first time since 1953.
Hutchinson has been chief longer than most of his firefighters have been alive.
“Sixty-three years is a long friggin’ time,” he said.
It is time to pass the job to someone new, he said — and for a well-deserved retirement after decades spent constantly on call.
“Fire chief in Greensburg is 24 hours, seven days a week,” Hutchinson said.
