▶ Watch Video: 4 people killed in shooting at Tulsa hospital, police say

Four people were killed in a shooting Wednesday evening on a hospital campus in Tulsa, Oklahoma, police said. The gunman is also dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to police.

The shooting occurred a little before 5 p.m. local time on the campus of Saint Francis Hospital, according to the Tulsa Police Department. Officers responded to the scene within three minutes, police said.

The gunman was not identified but was described as a Black male believed to be between 35 and 40 years old, Tulsa Deputy Police Chief Eric Dalgleish said in a news briefing. He was armed with a long gun and a handgun, Dalgleish said.

Officers encountered the suspect on the second floor of the hospital’s Natalie Building, Dalgleish said.

“The officers that did arrive were hearing shots in the building, and that’s what directed them to the second floor,” Dalgleish said. 

Emergency personnel work at the scene of a shooting at the Warren Clinic in Tulsa, Oklahoma, June 1, 2022.


Both weapons appeared to have been fired, Dalgleish disclosed. The gunman is believed to have shot and killed himself. 

“Right now, we believe that is self-inflicted,” Dalgleish said. 

Dalgleish said it was not immediately clear if the gunman had targeted somebody specific or if the shooting was random.

Police did not indicate if there were any additional injuries.

None of the four who were killed had been publicly identified as of Wednesday night.

Police later received information that the shooter may have left a bomb in a residence in Muskogee, Oklahoma, Muskogee police said Wednesday night. 

Surrounding homes were either evacuated, or residents were told to shelter in place. A bomb squad was on scene and police were in the process of obtaining a search warrant, police said.  

Muskogee is located about 50 miles southeast of Tulsa. 

Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt in a statement called the shooting a “senseless act of violence and hatred,” adding, “Sarah and I are praying for the families of those who lost their lives and for those who were injured.”
