A man who was arrested on a robbery warrant after police opened fire on the truck he was in, injuring three young children, has been released from a Texas hospital.

Choctaw County Jail records indicate that 21-year-old William Devaughn Smith was being held Sunday on an aggravated robbery complaint. The records don’t indicate whether Smith is represented by an attorney who could speak on his behalf.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says four children and their mother were with Smith when two officers approached him and gunfire broke out on Friday in Hugo, near the Texas state line.

Smith was treated for injuries and released from a hospital in Paris, Texas. The OSBI says that 5-, 4- and 1-year-old children received non-life threatening injuries. Their names and conditions weren’t released.
