The OSBI says two Hugo police officers confronted a man last Friday suspected of robbing a Choctaw County Pizza Hut. Agents say shots were fired and 21-year-old William Smith was treated and released then arrested.

Three children -- ages one, four, and five years old -- were in the truck and were also hurt. A fourth child escaped injury. 

The children were flown to a Tulsa hospital and have since been released. Smith is in jail on robbery charges.
