A convenience store robbery in northeastern Oklahoma has ended with a police shooting and a suspect in critical condition.
Authorities say Miami Police officer Chris Leamon shot Vivon Peterson three times after he robbed a Miami convenience store Sunday night. Peterson was shot in the chest, abdomen, and leg.
A video camera mounted in the patrol car is said to show officer Leamon firing at Peterson, after he raised his pistol and pointed it at the officer.
Petersonâ€™s weapon turned out to be a pellet gun.
