A man who allegedly exchanged gunfire with Tulsa police officers during a traffic stop has been hospitalized for treatment of his wounds.

Police say 35-year-old Harry James Hamilton Jr. was shot in the arm and abdomen around 1:45 a.m. Sunday.

Officer Leland Ashley told the Tulsa World (http://bit.ly/NT3sJH) officers tried to stop Hamilton's vehicle after they say he failed to yield. Authorities say when Hamilton pulled into a nearby driveway, he got out and allegedly shot at officers, striking a squad car at least once, before fleeing on foot.

Ashley says Officer Joshua Goldstein returned fire. Goldstein is on paid administrative leave while the department investigates the shooting.

Hamilton remains at St. John Medical Center.

The incident is the Tulsa Police Department's seventh officer-involved shooting this year.
