EUFAULA, Okla. -- (KFOR) -- An Oklahoma woman who was taken hostage and shot multiple times during a deadly bank robbery in Eufaula is facing a long road to recovery.

The armed robbery suspect grabbed Huff and left the bank in a stolen car and headed north on Hwy 69.
Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers used a tactical maneuver to stop the car, as Norris and police exchanged gunfire.
Norris was killed.
Huff was shot and severely injured.
