Oklahoma coppers shoot robbery suspect – and 3 children

Three children were wounded in a police shooting Friday in Oklahoma when an officer fired at a man in a truck who was suspected of robbing a restaurant earlier in the month…

❝ The three injured children and a fourth child were all in the truck with William Devaughn Smith, Arbeitman said. The bureau initially said two children were shot but later learned a third child was also struck. Officials did not immediately release the names, ages or conditions of the children.

❝ Smith was treated and released at a hospital in Paris, Texas, about 30 miles south of Hugo…Paris Police Chief Bob Hundle said he did not know the details of what happened in Hugo but that his officers took Smith into custody so that he could be booked at the Lamar County, Texas, jail on a warrant for aggravated robbery.

None of the reporting [yet] says that Smith was armed. None of the reporting says anything about why the police considered him the suspect in the robbery. They still haven’t determined whether or not the robbery was committed by someone who actually used a weapon.
