(CNN) — A teen was shot and killed Thursday night in Oklahoma after shooting several people, including two ATF agents, police said.

All the victims shot by the 19-year-old are expected to survive, police said.

The teen, identified as Henry Jackson, was killed at 9:30 p.m. Thursday after going on a two-day crime spree, said Sgt. Ryan Hunnicutt of the Ardmore Police Department.

Authorities say the incident started on Wednesday night when a 19-year-woman called 911 and said she had been shot in the arm.

About four blocks away from that shooting, another man was shot in the hip Thursday afternoon. Officers began to gather information that pointed to Jackson as a suspect in both incidents, Hunnicutt said.

Local police officers were searching for Jackson and two ATF agents in the area for a different matter joined the search.

The agents found Jackson in a car Thursday evening. He opened fire on them, wounding them, Hunnicutt said.

One of the agents was treated at the scene, the other was hospitalized with minor injuries.

Later, Ardmore police saw Jackson traveling in a Ford Taurusand a chase ensued. The

suspect fired at officers, Hunnicutt said, and officers fired back, killing him.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage.
