A Choctaw County man was taken to a Tulsa hospital after sheriff's officials say he shot at his ex-wife, and led officers on a car chase, while shooting at them. Choctaw Sheriff Lewis Collins said James Covington was shot and injured after he led deputies on a police chase in Southern Choctaw County Saturday night.
Collins said the incident started when Covington fired shots at his ex-wife at a convenience store in Fort Townsend. He then drove off, and was spotted by sheriff's deputies seven miles Southwest of Hugo. Collins said Covington led deputies on a chase through county roads, and shot nearly 20 total rounds, using a shotgun.
He said Covington hit a road block at the intersection of a county road and State Highway 109. Covington was taken to a Tulsa Hospital and is listed in good condition.
The OSBI is now investigating.
