(Scroll down for video) A police officer was suspended after shooting at teens who were making out in a car, police in Oklahoma said.

The shooting incident unfolded over the weekend on the campus of the Eliot Elementary School near 36th Street and South Peoria Avenue in Tulsa.

The two teens were probably doing something they should not have been doing in the parking lot, according to police. The officer was in his car and started asking questions, but the driver did not want to answer.

He tried to flee. That is when the officer shot at the car. The car’s back left tire was hit.

The two children were not at the scene when police arrived at the scene on Sunday, but detectives were able to find and talk to one of them about the incident. The 17-year-old student told investigators that he just wanted to leave from the scene.

The officer said that he felt threatened by this movement and fired the shot. The school district said that the children had no right to be on their property.
