Police say one of the men and the woman quickly walked into the home while the other man, later identified as William Hoover, began running from the officers.

According to Oklahoma City police, during the foot chase officers said they noticed that Hoover had a gun.

Officials say that at one point during the chase, Hoover turned toward the officer while holding the gun in his hand.

They say Hoover was ordered to drop the gun and allegedly refused.

At that time, he was shot by an officer.

Hoover was transported to a local hospital where he was treated and released after sustaining a non-life threatening gunshot wound.

Hoover was then booked into the Oklahoma County Jail on complaints of assault with a deadly weapon and possession of a firearm after former felony conviction.

The officer was not injured and has been placed on routine administrative leave.
