Muskogee, Okla. - A Muskogee cop is no doubt glad he had backup, when police say a stolen-car suspect tried to grab his gun.
Muskogee police say the car was pulled over near 4th and Elgin in Muskogee yesterday afternoon.
They say when an officer tried to arrest one person from the car, there was a struggle, and the man tried to grab the officer's gun.
Luckily for police, they say a second officer on the scene shot the suspect before he could get the gun.
The suspect was taken to a hospital.
The officers are on routine leave while they investigate the shooting.
