Officials said the incident took place about 6:30 p.m. Sunday at a trailer park near Highway 102 and Highway 66.

Their injuries are non-life-threatening.

Officials said Vance then took an officer's vehicle, drove to a nearby trailer and stole another car, firing shots at a woman there, as well.

One suspect is in custody, but police are still looking for Vance. He reportedly took off in a white Lincoln Towncar with a blue top.

Vance, who was last seen driving westbound down Highway 66, is considered armed and dangerous, police said. Officials said residents should lock their doors and be on the lookout.

The Lincoln County sheriff said Vance was recently arrested, and the shooting may be retaliation for that arrest.

Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation agents are investigating.
