Bixby officials say the vehicle eventually stopped near 171st Street and Memorial, and began driving towards the officer.

That's when the officer fired his weapon and the vehicle left the scene, according to officials. 

Police soon found the vehicle and a man with gunshot wounds. 

First responders took the man to the hospital.

Officials have confirmed the suspect has died due to the injury.

The suspect is a juvenile male, the name and age are not being released at this moment.
