Family Of Man Shot After Running From OHP Is Speaking Out

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

An Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper is on administrative leave after a traffic stop turned into a chase that ended in a shooting over the weekend.

The family of the man shot by the trooper says the man is stable and able to talk, but is still in the hospital.

OHP says the trooper tried to pull over a car along Highway 169 for a suspected tag violation. They say Alfred Hill, Jr. was a passenger in the car.

Investigators say the driver got off the highway at Admiral and stopped.  They say that's when Hill got out and took off running. A foot chase followed, which ended with shots fired by both Hill and the trooper, according to the OHP.

Troopers say they found a gun and drugs, but Hill’s sister says her brother would never shoot at law enforcement.

“He’s a family man and he’s got kids.  Little kids, that he would rather be in their life.  So, if he ran, that was the reason why he ran,” she said.  “If he had a gun, it was not to have a wild west shootout with an officer, it was for his own safety in his own neighborhood.”

She also says her brother is afraid of law enforcement and that the family just wants him back home.

The OHP says troopers interviewed the driver of the car and another passenger and released them. They told troopers Hill told them he had a gun and was going to run, according to the OHP. 

OHP says the trooper will stay on administrative leave until the investigation wraps up.
