The town of Oologah identified the wounded officer Friday morning. Neill was hit in the head but was alert when a medical helicopter flew him to a Tulsa hospital.
Lakeside State Bank in Oologah has set up an account for Neill and his family. Donations can be made to account number 132136.
The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation said it has been called in to investigate Neill's shooting. It says the pursuit began after a Talala officer stopped a vehicle with Garcia, the man and woman. That officer requested back up, and Oologah Officer Charles Neill responded.
The driver of the suspect vehicle took off, and Neill was shot during the subsequent pursuit.
"OSBI is only investigating the shooting of the Oologah officer," a news release states.
The other two suspects have been identified as Cesar Rios, 23, and Roxanne Mendoza, 20.
