OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Police in Oklahoma City say an officer has been shot in southeast Oklahoma City.

The unidentified police officer was shot about 5 p.m. Wednesday near a motel along Interstate 35. The officer was taken to the University of Oklahoma Medical Center trauma unit. His condition was not immediately known.

Detectives have closed a portion of I-35 on the city’s southeast side as they investigate the shooting. A suspect reportedly was taken into custody following a brief chase.

Video of the scene indicates the motel has been cordoned off as investigators comb through a room at the motel and talk to witnesses.
