STILWELL, Okla. (AP) - Authorities say they’ve arrested a man who went on the run after being injured in a shootout with police in eastern Oklahoma.

The Tahlequah Daily Press reports Stilwell police Friday were following a car driven by a man they say was involved in a drive-by shooting. The man identified by police as TJ Cain crashed the car then started shooting while he ran away. Police returned fire.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says officers arrested Cain about 6 p.m. Friday and took him to the hospital for injuries to both legs. At least one officer believes he may have shot Cain.

An arrest warrant was issued for Cain on counts of assault with a dangerous weapon and assault with a deadly weapon. No officers were injured.
