TULSA -- Authorities have identified the man shot in an officer-involved shooting at 62nd and Peoria on Thursday afternoon as Charles G. Day, 36.

Witnesses say Day and the officer got into an argument before Day pushed away from the officer. The officer used his Taser which, according to police, had no effect on Day.

The suspect then ran into a vacant lot with the officer. While chasing Day, the officer, later identified as 30-year-old Officer Jason Angel, saw him put his hand on a gun. The officer fired multiple shots, hitting Day twice.

Day was transported to the hospital in critical condition. Officer Angel is on leave pending the investigation into the shooting.

Earlier in April, the detective division told officers to be aware that Day was armed.
