SENTINEL, Okla.- The Oklahoma man accused of calling in a bomb threat, which indirectly lead to the shooting of the Sentinel police chief, remains behind bars.
James Holly appeared before a judge Thursday where his bail was set at $100,000. Meanwhile, we're hearing from the Washita County undersheriff who gave his bullet proof vest to Police Chief Louis Ross just moments before he was shot.
“I went to my patrol vehicle and pulled my entry vest out and gave it to him to wear. If he had not had that vest on, chances are he would not be here with us,” said Washita County Undersheriff Kenny Loftiss.
Chief Ross was shot three times in the chest and once in the arm, but will be okay. The OSBI has cleared the home owner who shot Chief Ross of all charges because they say he did not know who was breaking into his home.
