TULSA, Okla. — Police confirm four people are dead after a shooting at a hospital in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Deputy Chief Eric Dalgleish describes who they believe the shooter was.
“He is a black male estimated to be 35-to-40-years-old,” he said. “We confirmed he also had one long gun, a rifle, and one hand gun at the scene.”
Dalgleish said the shooter killed himself. Police say he was targeting someone on the second floor of the hospital when he shot four health care workers.
Officers were inside the building within three minutes of the first 911 call and heard the shots. They opened the door to a doctor’s office to find the victims and the suspect dead, saying he was armed with a rifle and handgun.
Muskogee Police are confirming that there is a bomb at a house in the nearby city that is tied to the shooting.
Oklahoma’s governor is calling a mass shooting in Tulsa Wednesday a “senseless act of violence and hatred.” Republican Kevin Stitt also expressed gratitude for the first responders handling the scene, and added that he’s offered the city any state resources that may be needed.
