(Holdenville-AP) -- Authorities have called off the search for a man who reportedly fired shots at an Allen police officer during a traffic stop in Hughes County.

Hughes County officials say William Rockey is still at large.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol sent a tactical team to assist with the search, and vehicles from at least six counties set up a perimeter around the wooded area where the man was believed to be hiding.
