An Oklahoma man is wanted after allegedly shooting a Cleveland County deputy and striking and killing a motorist with a stray bullet Wednesday morning, authorities said.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigations (OSBI) said they, along with other law enforcement agencies, are currently searching for 25-year-old Kameron Jenkins, who was last seen on Interstate 35, south of Paul’s Valley.

According to authorities, the deputy was shot near the 60-mile marker of I-35 during an attempted traffic stop that turned into a pursuit.
