A police chase and officer-involved shooting ended with an attempted Tulsa carjacking and arrest Thursday afternoon.

Police say the chase started in east Tulsa after a Nissan pickup was reported stolen. TPD's helicopter located the truck near 19th and Lewis. 

In their arrest report, police say Holquin backed into a driveway and then tried to run over an officer who had approach the truck. That is when police say that officer, Officer Kelli Braitsch, fired nine shots at the pickup. None of the shots hit Holquin, but several hit the truck.
