A black male opened fire at a medical building in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on Wednesday, killing several people and wounding several others.
The Tulsa Police Department reported that five people were killed, including the shooter, during the attack on the Natalie Building on the St. Francis Hospital Campus.
The New York Times reported that law enforcement officials had not identified the suspect yet, but noted that he was “a Black male between 35 and 40 years old.”
“Officers immediately rushed to the second floor where the shooting was taking place, when they got there they found a few people had been shot, a couple were dead at that time,” Tulsa Police Captain Richard Meulenberg told ABC News. “We also found at that time who [we] believe and still believe to [be] the shooter.”
Law enforcement officials said that they believed that the shooter used both weapons that he brought with him and that he ultimately took his own life as officers moved in.
“We are doing a meticulous floor-by-floor, room-by-room search … It’s calmed down,” Meulenberg said. “We’re trying to connect people and we’re hoping not to find any victims.”
