TULSA -- Police are searching for a suspect they say fired a shot during a car jacking at a QuikTrip station.

Officers say the man pulled out a gun and demanded a customer's gray Chevrolet Silverado.

They say as the suspect drove off in the stolen truck, he fired his gun at another customer who'd just arrived at the gas station.

Police then chased after the suspect.

The pursuit came to an end at East 38th Street North and North Harvard, after officers say the suspect tried to get away by driving into oncoming traffic.

They say the man ditched the truck and ran on foot. Police called in a helicopter and K9 unit to help search for the suspect, and took him into custody.
