Names released in Oklahoma Highway Patrol shooting

Authorities have released the identity of a man who was shot and killed Wednesday by Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers.

Adam Ray Hernandez, 34, was suspected of driving a stolen vehicle when troopers pursued him on Interstate 35. Hernandez exited at NW 27 in Moore, where he lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a utility pole and trees.

OHP officials said two troopers shot Hernandez after he got out of the vehicle.

The troopers involved in the shooting were Joe Kimmons and Clay Anderson. Kimmons has been with OHP for 20 years and Anderson has been on the patrol for 18 years. Both have been placed on paid administrative leave.

OHP is conducting an investigation and will turn over its findings to the district attorney’s office, authorities said.
