VINITA — The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says a Kansas man was treated and released from a hospital after he was shot by police in northeastern Oklahoma.

Authorities say two Vinita police officers and an officer from the Big Cabin Police Department were involved a pursuit with a vehicle early Wednesday near the junction of U.S. 69 and Oklahoma 66.

OSBI says 24-year-old Michael O'Mara of Wichita allegedly turned his vehicle around and started driving toward the officers, who opened fire.
