UPDATE: The burglary suspect shot has been identified as 18-year-old Charles Pettit.
A second suspect is on the run after a man was shot multiple times by an officer around 4 a.m. Oct. 5 on Rose State's campus.
Around 3:50 a.m., Midwest City Police responded to a burglary in the residential area near Rose State.
When officer arrived, they saw two men jump over a fence and run away.
Officers said they began chasing the suspects and found one crouching down by a dumpster near the Aquatics Center.
Police asked him to show his hands several times, but the suspect pulled a gun and an officer shot him multiple times.
"[The suspect] put the officer in imminent danger of death or great bodily harm at the moment when he produced a gun." Midwest City Chief of Police Brandon Clabes said in a statement.
The suspect was transported to a local hospital and at time of press was in critical condition.
Concerning campus security, Clabes said this is an isolated indecent and only involved the campus because "the suspect fled the crime scene onto the school's property."
"I want you all to know that the campus is secure," Rose State President Jeanie Webb said in a statement released on Rose State's Facebook page. "The Midwest City Police Department in collaboration with campus security will continue to provide a safe and secure environment for all on campus."
Tamara Pratt, vice president for Student Affairs and Marketing, said that Rose State is confident in the safety precautions on campus.
"We feel very comfortable with the security precaution we have in place," Pratt said.
With the Umpqua Community College shooting in Oregon just days prior to this incident, Pratt wanted those who are associating the two events to be assured security has been collaborating with Midwest City Police to help prevent incidents like this from happening on campus.
"Because you can not predict what people will do, [security] is something we have already paid close attention to," Pratt added. "We are continually looking into how we may be able to improve those security measures."
Rose State's security office is available 24/7 at 733-7313. In the event of an emergency, call 911.
