Justin Terney, 22, died from his injuries in hospital on Monday morning after suffering three gunshot wounds during the confrontation on Sunday night.

Tecumseh Assistant Police Chief J.R. Kidney said Terney graduated last summer from the police academy.

"I'm deeply saddened to hear the news of Tecumseh Police Officer Justin Terney who passed away this morning", the statement reads.

The suspect was also shot and was in intensive care Monday morning, Kidney added. Kidney said the man ran away as Terney checked with dispatchers to see if he had any outstanding warrants.

Terney pulled over a vehicle about 11:30 p.m. Sunday in Tecumseh, 35 miles southeast of Oklahoma City, according to police. He said Terney chased the man on foot and used a stun gun, but that failed to stop the man, who then shot at Terney.

Both wounded men were taken to OU Medical Center.

Fallin said she intends to order all flags on state property to be flown at half-staff on the day of Terney's funeral, which hasn't been scheduled.
