OSBI Investigating Officer-Involved Shooting Near Vinita

Posted: Updated:

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says a Kansas man was treated and released from a hospital after he was shot by police in northeastern Oklahoma.

Authorities say two Vinita police officers and an officer from the Big Cabin Police Department were involved a pursuit with a vehicle early Wednesday near the junction of U.S. 69 and Oklahoma 66.

The suspect, Kenneth Lee Ilderton, 26, allegedly turned his vehicle around and started driving toward the officers, who then opened fire.

OSBI says Ilderton originally identified himself as Michael O'Mara of Wichita.

OSBI says Ilderton was treated and released from the hospital early Wednesday. Ilderton was booked in the Craig County jail on a complaint of assault with a deadly weapon and possession of a controlled dangerous substance. An additional complaint of criminal impersonation has been added.

Ilderton had several felony warrants against him.

Authorities did not know if he had an attorney.
