Three children were wounded in an Oklahoma police shooting in which officers fired at a robbery suspect in a pickup truck.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation said that the injuries of the kids are non-life-threatening.

According to OSBI spokeswoman Brook Arbeitman, the children of ages 5, 4 and 1, were taken to a hospital in Tulsa area. Their names of the kids and their conditions were not released.

Olivia Hill told news station KXII-TV of Sherman, Texas, that she is the mom of those three and of another fourth child who was not injured.

Olivia told the station,

My 4-year-old daughter was shot in the head, and she has a bullet in her brain, and my 5-year-old has a skull fracture. My 1-year-old baby has gunshot wounds on her face. My 2-year-old wasn't touched with any bullets.

The mother and the four kids were in the pickup with William Devaughn Smith, 21, when two police officers approached him on Friday, April 26.

The gunfire eventually broke out. The relationship of William with Olivia and the children is unclear.

William, who was also wounded, was treated at a hospital in Paris, Texas, and he was then arrested and taken to a Texas jail on an Oklahoma robbery warrant.
