BROKEN ARROW, Okla. — One person is dead and police are looking for two more people in connection with the shooting of a Broken Arrow officer on Nov. 6.

Around 2:40 a.m. Broken Arrow police tried to stop a driver for a traffic violation near East Kenosha Street and County Line Road.

When the driver stopped, two people got out and ran.

The driver, later identified as 31-year-old Cory Batt, exchanged gunshots with Officer Caleb Sherman, a five-year veteran with the department.

A gunshot hit Sherman in the leg. He later went to the hospital to be treated and released.

Investigators later found Batt dead in the nearby woods. Investigators say they believe he shot himself.

Police say they're still working to find the two people who ran from the car before the shooting. They've identified one of them as Jason Maple, and are still trying to identify the other one.

A district attorney cleared Sherman of any charges involved in the shooting.
