I was in a gunfight on December 3rd 2013. Assisting Chickasha PD in a vehicle pursuit. Suspect wrecked out, and fled on foot. I ended up catching up to him in an alleyway between 2 houses, and somehow ended up being the sole LEO present. He acted as if he was surrending, and placed his hands in the air. I gave verbal commands, to which he was compliant at first. When I commanded him to get on the ground, he started to take a knee, then attempted to flee again. At that time I deployed my taser, which was ineffective. He responded by pulling a .357 magnum revolver out of waistband, and we exchanged fire. Luckily he missed me with all his rounds, and I struck him three times, once being in the face. During OSBI's investigation, they determined we were no more than 6 feet apart during the exchange of gunfire. He survived, and is currently serving 25 years in prison.
