www.foxnews.com... This shooting everything turned out OK. At least the suspect was release unharmed. Sheriff survived. Suspect released.
So he shot the sheriff. Did he shoot the deputy?
i think not

If I were more evil than I am, I would find it entertaining if someone SWATted a SWAT team member. Or police chief. Or some fine upstanding hero. Maybe a bit of perspective would throttle that back, but probably not.

SENTINEL — The police chief here survived being shot in the chest Thursday while responding to a reported bomb threat, and the man who authorities say shot him was allowed to walk free later in the day.
Sentinel Police Chief Louis Ross was shot in the chest three times and once in the arm Thursday morning after breaking down the front door and entering a house at 205 S 4, Sentinel Mayor Sam Dlugonski said.
The chief was wearing a bulletproof vest that was loaned to him by a sheriff’s deputy minutes before the raid on the home. He survived the shooting, and authorities said the vest saved his life.
Agents with the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation said the man who shot the chief was released after hours of questioning when they determined they didn’t have enough evidence to arrest him.
“Facts surrounding the case lead agents to believe the man was unaware it was officers who made entry,” OSBI wrote in a news release.
SENTINEL — A call to 911 to make a bomb threat against a school in this southwest Oklahoma town was not made from the house where the police chief was shot on Thursday morning, investigators said Friday.
The question of who did make the bomb threat — called in to 911 about 4 a.m. Thursday — remains unanswered.
What is known is that in response to the threat, authorities broke in the door of a house about 6 a.m. Thursday at 205 S 4, where Police Chief Louis Ross was shot three times in the chest and once in the arm by a man in the home.
Ross survived thanks to a bullet-proof vest loaned to him by a sheriff’s deputy minutes before the raid, investigators said. He has been released from the hospital.
Friday, an Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation forensic computer analyst examined phones taken from the home, agents said.
OSBI released a statement saying the 911 call “was not made from phones in the possession of those who live inside the home nor any other phones inside the residence at 205 S. 4th in Sentinel.”
Sentinel Mayor Sam Dlugonski and a neighbor on S 4 said the man who lives at 205 S 4 is Dallas Horton. Dlugonski said Friday that someone called 911 and used the name Dallas Horton to make the bomb threat.
