An employee was shot by a man attempting to steal a four-wheeler from a southwest Oklahoma City business, but is expected to survive, police said.

No names were released Tuesday.

About 7:45 p.m., officers responded to a shooting call at J.R.T. Cycles, 2420 SW 29, where they found the employee with a gunshot wound, Lt. Jeff Cooper said.

The employee said he heard a dog barking and found a man trying to steal a four-wheeler. A fight ensued and the man pulled out a gun and fired, Cooper said.

The shooter fled to a nearby house and asked the residents to hide him, but they instead called the police, who arrested him after a short foot chase, Cooper said.

The weapon was not recovered from the shooter, he said.
