Three children were injured as police in Oklahoma opened fire on a robbery suspect Friday evening. The suspect was also shot in the incident.

William Devaughn Smith, 21, was located in Hugo, near the Texas-Oklahoma border, where police attempted to take the man into custody, according to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation. Smith is suspected of robbing a Pizza Hut in Hugo on April 11.

While attempting to "make contact" with Smith, police officers opened fire and shot him, as well as three children, the OSBI said in a statement. Smith and four children were in a vehicle when the detectives from the Hugo Police Department opened fire, Brook Arbeitman, a spokeswoman for the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, told The Associated Press.
