Oklahoma City, Okla. — A wounded Oklahoma City police officer was in good condition Sunday, one day after a vehicle pursuit ended when a fellow officer gunned down his assailant.

Officer Kris Hunter remained at OU Medical Center following surgery. He was wounded in his left arm and received a graze wound to his left leg, police Capt. Patrick Stewart said. He was wounded about 5:10 p.m. Saturday, moments before officer Daniel Godsil fatally shot a driver who had sped away from an attempted traffic stop, Stewart said.

Investigators had not identified the suspect Sunday, Stewart said.
