The audio from the App Broadcastify. The officers have not yet been identified, and we've not be able to get an update on the critically injured officer. The other officer suffered non-life threatening injuries. The officers tried to issue to warrant about 3 o'clock Sunday afternoon.

It's believed the suspect was shot and wounded. A separate Video from KWTV News 9 shows him wrapped in a blood-soaked towel. He was taken by ambulance to Grady Memorial Hospital. Officials have not yet released his name, and his condition is unknown. He has not yet been booked into the Grady County Jail, according to the Grady County Criminal Justice Authority website.
