A shooting at a family gathering left two people dead and three injured, according to Oklahoma police.
At about 2 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 19, officers with the Tulsa Police Department responded to a call about a shooting at a home on the city’s northeast side, police said in a news release.
There were more than a dozen people at the gathering, including adults, young children and teenagers, police said.
At some point, a 16-year-old got into an argument with someone at the gathering and was told to leave, along with his 15-year-old friend, police said, adding that both of the teens were armed.
Investigators said the 16-year-old was the boyfriend of a guest invited to the gathering.
The teens were escorted out of the home by a 40-year-old father who was carrying a semi-automatic rifle, according to police.
Once outside the home, the father and the 16-year-old opened fire on each other, and the teen was killed, police said. The father was also fatally struck by gunfire, collapsed and dropped his rifle.
The man’s 20-year-old son grabbed the rifle and exchanged gunfire with the other teen, and both were wounded, according to police.
The 20-year-old was shot in the leg and hip, and the 15-year-old is in critical condition, police say. An 18-year-old was also struck and possibly paralyzed, officials added.
An investigation is underway.
Officials have not publicly identified anyone involved.
