— A Yukon man shot by law enforcement officers in Canadian County died from his injuries, authorities said.

Glen Wayne Kyle, 51, was pronounced dead about 10 p.m. Saturday at OU Medical Center.

Kyle was shot in the chest and thigh after he fired four shots at officers, Canadian County Sheriff Randall Edwards said

Officers received a call shortly after 8 p.m. about a driver firing a shot at another vehicle near SH-66 and Cemetery Road, Edwards said.

He said a Canadian County sheriff's deputy and El Reno police officer were sent to the location and found the suspect vehicle in the area.

Officers tried to stop the vehicle, but the driver led them on a pursuit, Edwards said.

The man then drove to his house near W Britton and N Richland roads, northwest of Yukon.

Edwards said the man got out of the vehicle with a pistol in hand and fired four shots at officers.

Deputy Sgt. Paul Reynolds fired one shot and struck Kyle in the chest. El Reno officer Jarad Loggins fired and struck the man in the thigh.

Reynolds and Loggins have been placed on paid administrative leave while the shooting is investigated.
