Oklahoma City Officer Car Rammed, Suspect Opened Fire as Cop was Trapped Inside

Oklahoma City Officer Samuel Flowers was on his way to a call, when a suspect came up behind him and repeatedly rammed his patrol vehicle. With officer Flowers still trapped inside, the suspect exited his car and opened fire. The officer was able to grab his rifle and shoot the suspect in order to stop the assault. Both officer and suspect had non-life-threatening injuries.

“I gotta guy that just tried to run into my car. He’s coming up behind me now.”

“He’s coming back at me again now.” 

“Yeah, he just hit my car.” 

“He’s taking off northbound again. Looks like he’s going to whip around again.”

“I’m hit, I’m trapped in the vehicle.”

The Oklahoma City Police released this statement:

May 1, 2021 at 2:15am Officer Flowers was driving south on Martin Luther King Boulevard on his way to an unrelated disturbance call. Quinton Pace was also driving south on Martin Luther King Boulevard and struck Officer Flowers’ vehicle several times before both vehicles were disabled at N.E. 52nd Street. Officer Flowers was trapped inside his vehicle after the collision. Mr. Pace exited his vehicle with a gun and began firing at Officer Flowers while he was still inside his vehicle. Officer Flowers fired his weapon through his patrol car’s windshield and driver’s side window, striking Mr. Pace and stopping his actions. Shortly thereafter, a responding officer was able to place Mr. Pace in custody. Officer Flowers was taken to a local hospital to be treated for minor injuries he sustained during the collision. Mr. Pace was also transported to a local hospital where he received treatment for non-life-threatening injuries. Mr. Pace was booked into the Oklahoma County Detention Center on the listed charges.

The investigation is ongoing.

Oklahoma City Police press release

The suspect was identified as Quinton Pace, 37. He was charged with one count of shooting with the intent to kill and use of a firearm while committing a felony. He was booked into the Oklahoma County Detention Center.

Police released footage from Oklahoma City Officer Flowers’ body cam and surveillance videos. The officer remained calm enough to grab his rifle even as Mr Pace began firing his weapon after the collision that disabled both vehicles.

This could have ended badly, but fortunately for everyone concerned, it did not. Officer Flowers only had minor injuries from the crash.
