An arrest warrant was issued Monday for a man accused of side-swiping an Oklahoma City Police officer's vehicle early Saturday and shooting at him.

Quinton Edward Pace, 37, of Midwest City, is wanted on suspicion of shooting with intent to kill, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon-vehicle and use of a firearm while committing a felony.

According to police, the officer responded to another call as he was driving along Martin Luther King Boulevard near Northeast 52nd Street just after 2 a.m. when another driver approached and struck the police vehicle.

"Just started hitting him,” Oklahoma City Police Department Captain Dan Stewart said. “Basically side swiped him.”

"The suspect gets out of his car and engages our officer with gunfire," Stewart said. "Starts shooting at our officer."

Police said that's when the officer began firing back.

"He struck the suspect," Stewart said. "The suspect was eventually taken into custody shortly thereafter and was transported to a local hospital."

That suspect has since been identified as Pace.

This is a developing story.
