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.

Hunter also was involved in a police shooting July 3, 2006, in northwest Oklahoma City, according to The Oklahoman archives. He was investigating a caller’s report of a wanted man in the 300 block of NW 79 when Antonio Walker, then 21, approached him with a gun. Hunter shot Walker when he ignored orders to drop the weapon.

Walker’s felony case of pointing a firearm, which stems from the incident, is pending in Oklahoma County, online court records show. He filed a civil suit against Hunter, police and the city, but it was dismissed.

Hunter and another officer rescued a couple from their burning northwest Oklahoma City apartment on Feb.
