Bartlesville Police said they received a call about a stolen vehicle around 7 p.m. Friday night and located it at the Casey's General Store near SE Adams and Madison Boulevard in Bartlesville.

Police said when they arrived, they confronted the suspect, Tyler Scott Thomas Rollins, who then ran off. Police said Rollins pulled out a gun and that’s when officers fired four shots.
