Before he crashed, Rider stopped at a Country Boy store along State Highway 9 near Lake Thunderbird and asked the employees if anyone had tried to buy anything with large amounts of change, Booth said.

“From there, we think that's when he (Rider) entered Pottawatomie County and we believe there was a confrontation with one or more of the suspects where he (Rider) was shot,” Booth said.

Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation agents found fingerprints and blood evidence, including a large amount of blood on the roof of the van, Booth said.

Rider suffered injuries to his head and had one gunshot wound in his hand and another one in his chest, authorities said.

Cleveland County deputies recovered all of the items stolen from Rider's home, except for two guns, Booth said.
