Two Oklahoma City police officers are recovering after being shot by a man during a traffic stop.

Just before 11 p.m. on Monday,  Sgt. Jason Burgess stopped a vehicle near N.W. 12th St. and Rockwell Ave. Burgess walked up to the car and spoke with the three people inside the vehicle.

After running their information, Burgess learned the driver, 24-year-old Renarbrey Jones, and one of the passengers, 32-year-old Roger Gurley, Jr., had outstanding warrants, KFOR.com reports.

Burgess called for backup and other officers arrived. As Jones was being handcuffed, officers say 24-year-old Lincoln Price got out of the car, pulled out a semi-automatic weapon and began shooting at police.

Burgess was shot in the leg and another officer, Sgt. Jonathan Davis, suffered a hand and finger injury.

Officers returned fire and killed Price.

Good police work, one less dirt bag to worry about.

Thank God the officer was not seriously injured and the perp was killed. I wonder if any of the officers were White, if thats the case then it was obviously a bad shoot. (well per Holder it would be)

why do they have to keep shooting at the cops. Another one pays the price for his bad choices. Way to back each other up officers. Stay safe brothers and sisters.

Your Handguns are good for 20 ft away but I have fired all forms of Pistols and foret semi auto 4 inch barrels give me a .44 magnum with good 6 inch or 8 inch barrel and never fear the distance or need for massive magazines? Better off with good 8 or 10 inch barrel from a 45 colt perhaps 9mm PSD1 H&K for that would be far better in firefight than relying on some .40 cal even if you hit sillouettes targets all day? Trust me try it on pop up targets and see for yourself?
