(OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla.) UPDATE 1/23/20: OHP has identified the suspect from Wednesday's trooper-involved shooting as Adam Ray Hernandez, DOB 2/10/1985. Hernandez led troopers on a pursuit in a reported stolen vehicle, eventually crashing in Moore. Hernandez was shot by two troopers after exiting the vehicle. OHP Troop Z (Investigative Division) is conducting the investigation and will turn over their findings to the district attorney's office. The troopers involved in the shooting, Trooper Joe Kimmons and Trooper Clay Anderson, have been placed on routine paid administrative leave. Kimmons has been with OHP for 20 years and Anderson has been on the patrol for 18 years. ORIGINAL STORY: On Wednesday around 11:38 a.m., troopers were notified of a stolen vehicle out of Purcell. Around 11:53 a.m., two of our troopers spotted the black Tahoe traveling northbound on I-35 and a pursuit ensued. The suspect vehicle took the Shields exit in Moore off of I-35 and lost control of the vehicle, departing the roadway and traveling through a median, eventually crashing into a light pole on the north side of N.W. 27th street. The entire pursuit lasted five minutes. After the suspect exited his vehicle, shots were fired by the two troopers and the suspect was pronounced dead at the scene. The troopers involved were not injured. OHP Troop Z (Investigations Division) is investigating the shooting and will ultimately present their findings to the District Attorney.
We are awaiting next of kin notification before releasing the name of the suspect.
