The Tulsa Police Department is investigating a shooting that occurred early Saturday in downtown Tulsa.
Police responded to Fassler Hall, 304 S. Elgin, and encountered a large crowd around the shooting victim. Police said the crowd was uncooperative and confrontational with emergency personnel, making it difficult to render aid to the victim.
A second crowd was across the street and was also uncooperative. GID patrol and Impact Officers responded and were eventually able to get the scene under control and secured it for the TPD Crime Scene Unit.
The victim was transported to the hospital where he was rushed into surgery for an apparent gunshot to the abdomen.
Once the scene was secured Officers were able to obtain video of the incident. In the video a group of males begin to fight outside the bar, an unknown black male runs up and pulls out a pistol.
Soon after two black males rush the suspect and a shot is fired, striking the victim.
After the shooting the suspect attempted to flee and was then assaulted by several individuals. While officers were arriving the suspect fled.
As of Saturday afternoon, the victim is reportedly in stable condition.
