At least four people were kil*ed Wednesday in a sho*ting on a hospital campus in Tulsa, Oklahoma, police said in a news conference Wednesday evening.
A man who blamed his doctor for pain after back surgery last month bought gu*s in recent days before storming into a Tulsa medical building, kil*ing four people and then himself, police said.
The gu*man, described as 35 to 40 years old and armed with a rif*e and a handg*n, appeared to have di*d from a self-inflicted gunsh*t wound, Tulsa Deputy Chief Eric Dalgleish told reporters.
The gu*man is also passed away police said. Authorities believe the sho*ter’s gunsh*t wound was self-inflicted, Tulsa Police Department Deputy Chief Eric Dalgleish said in the news conference.
Several people were also wounded, though no one has life-threatening injuries, police Capt. Richard Meulenberg told CNN on Wednesday night.Dispatchers received a call about an active sho*ter at the Natalie Medical Building, a physicians’ office building on the St. Francis Hospital campus, shortly after 4:50 p.m. local time, Dalgleish said.
Officers responded to the scene within minutes and made contact with victims and the suspect roughly five minutes later, Dalgleish said. The officers who arrived could hear sh*ts inside the building, which directed them to the second floor, according to the deputy chief.”The scene is fairly limited to one section of that floor, on the second floor,” Dalgleish said.
At least part of the scene was in an orthopedic office on that floor, according to Dalgleish.No officers were injured, he added.Investigators are interviewing witnesses that were in the building, Dalgleish said.
One witness was found locked in a closet, he said.Police said they are “getting close” to identifying the suspect, who Dalgleish said had one rif*e and one handg*n with him. “It appears both weapons, at one point or another, were fired,” the deputy chief said.
Authorities were notifying the victims’ families Wednesday night, Meulenberg told CNN.”It’s a horribly tragic event,” Meulenberg said. “I’m very, very proud of the officers for getting there as quickly as they did, very well potentially stopping more people from losing their life today.
“Tulsa Mayor G.T. Bynum expressed “profound gratitude” for the first responders who “did not hesitate today to respond to this act of violence.”
“The men and women of the Tulsa Police Department did not hesitate,” the mayor said.
Earlier Wednesday, Meulenberg said authorities had to evacuate “multiple floors” of the building.”It was just madness inside, with hundreds of rooms and hundreds of people trying to get out of the building,” Meulenberg told CNN Wednesday night.
There has been a reunification site set up for family members and friends at Memorial High School west of LaFortune Park, police added.”There is nothing more this community could do for us than to pray for the families and the loved ones and the victims of this senseless act,” Cliff Robertson, the Saint Francis Health System CEO, said in the news conference.
Officers confirmed that the suspected sho*ter, who was armed with a rif”e and a handg*n, was also passed away.Police arrived at the scene on Wednesday afternoon at St Francis Hospital in three minutes – which they say ensured the de*th toll wasn’t higher.
Multiple injuries had also been confirmed, officials added.Speaking at a press conference on Wednesday, Deputy Police Chief Eric Dalgleish said: “Right now we have four civilians that are de*d, and one sho*ter that is de*d.”He said the sho*ter, who has not yet been identified, sustained fatal gunsh*t wounds which were believed to have been self-inflicted.
The suspect “had one long gun and one hand g*n on the scene at the time”, he said.No information was available about a possible motivation for the att*ck.
