Sentinel Police Chief Shot Multiple Times During Bomb Investigation [Video]


The Sentinel police chief was shot Thursday morning during an investigation into a bomb threat.

According to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, Chief Louis Ross was shot after going to the home of a person suspected of calling in a bomb threat to the Head Start program.

Sentinel Mayor Sam Dlugonsky said a person called a bomb threat into the Community Action Head Start program. Police traced that threat back to a suspect.

The mayor said police went to the suspect’s home and cleared one room of the house. Dlugonsky said as police were working to clear the second bedroom, Ross was shot three times in the chest and one time in the arm. Authorities said Ross was wearing a bullet-proof vest.

According to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigations, Ross had a protective vest on because a Washita County Deputy loaned it to him just before they entered the home.

Ross was taken to a hospital in Hobart with non-life-threatening injuries.

Two people are in police custody as a result of the incident.
