Sergeant Matthew Schoolfield, a 10-year veteran with CPD, was hit by gunfire immediately. "He was able to continue in the fight until he could no longer continue", said Music.

Officer Daniel Ramirez, a 1 1/2-year veteran with CPD, also was struck by gunfire, taking shrapnel to his right forearm and to his left ring finger.

The officers were there trying to serve a search warrant on Alex Warren Klingler, 61. He too was treated at OU Medical Center and has been released.

OSBI officials are investigating the shooting and said it will be a lengthy one because five different officers fired their weapons.

Klingler was armed with a semiautomatic.308 rifle.

Numerous agencies, including Grady County Sheriff's Office, Lighthorse Police Department, Caddo County Sheriff's Office, Oklahoma Highway Patrol, and Ninnekah Police Department, arrived to assist.

He was booked Monday evening into the Grady County Jail after being treated at the hospital.

An account has been set up at First National Bank in Chickasha for the families of the injured officers.
