A man accused of trying to shoot an Oklahoma City police officer with the officer's gun is in jail with bail set at $92,000, authorities said Monday.

Steven D. Lampkin, 29, was found Saturday morning hiding in the attic of a vacant home in the 300 block of NW 87. He was arrested on complaints of shooting with intent to kill, assault and battery on a police officer, pointing a firearm at an individual, possession of a firearm after a felony conviction and robbery by force or fear.

Lampkin was pulled over about 2:30 a.m. Saturday for speeding and stopped in a driveway in the 300 block of NW 91, police Capt. Dexter Nelson said. When the officer approached the vehicle, Lampkin got out of the car and ran away.

The officer caught up with Lampkin and they struggled. During the struggle, Lampkin took the officer's gun and shot at him at least once, Nelson said.

The officer ran back to his patrol vehicle to retrieve his second firearm and called for backup, Nelson said. Other officers arrived and set up a perimeter around the North Highland neighborhood.

Officers searching the neighborhood found Lampkin in the vacant house and negotiated with him to come out. He came out about 8 a.m. His leg was injured while breaking into the vacant house, Nelson said.

He was taken to the Oklahoma County jail after being treated by paramedics.

Lampkin has several outstanding warrants and city charges, including possession of a controlled dangerous substance, failure to pay child support and driving under the influence, Nelson said.

According to the state Corrections Department's website, Lampkin was convicted of four burglaries in 2007.
