The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation said it started when Okmulgee County deputies attempted an undercover buy from Sanchez, but investigators said Sanchez took off, leading to a chase and officer-involved shooting.

You don't see the shooting on the body camera video, but you can hear five or six gunshots.

Officers quickly pulled Sanchez out of the car and got cuffs on him. In the background, you can hear a woman crying.

As the officer walks around the car, another officer gets the toddler out of his car seat.

The little boy was not hurt, but Morrow, who was in the front seat, had a gunshot wound to her neck.

Three years ago, News On 6 interviewed Morrow after her brother was shot and killed by Okmulgee Police.

“They didn't have to shoot him that many times. They could have shot him once in the leg. They didn't have to shoot him at all,” she said.

We reached out to Morrow's attorney for an update on her condition and are still waiting for a response.
