Shocking footage taken Saturday in Oklahoma shows as the alleged thief tries to flee in his car before being shot at '10 or 11 times'. 
Del City police confirmed they are investigating after a clip of the incident was posted online. 
Neither the shooting victim, who is understood to have been taken to a local hospital in a stable condition, or the off duty officer involved have been named.  The man shot at was described by onlookers as a black male. 
He attempted to leave the store with more than he had paid for, police said.
