By John Dobberstein, Editor

Sunday's shooting that killed one person and injured two others was likely a targeted act and there is no ongoing threat to the Melinda Park neighborhood, the Broken Arrow Police Department said  Wednesday. 

Police were called to the 6300 block of S. 116th East Ave. at about 4:15 p.m. for a call about shots fired at a home. Upon arrival they discovered three victims of a shooting, including two adult females and a 16-year-old male.

One of the female victims was treated on scene and released. The second female victim and the male victim were taken to the hospital, and the male died. The second female victim has since been released from the hospital.

"This is a complicated investigation with numerous people involved and witnesses. Detectives are actively exploring all leads," said BAPD Public Information Officer Ethan Hutchins. "At this time, information points to the fact that the victims were specifically targeted. There is no ongoing threat to the surrounding homes or the Melinda Park Neighborhood.

Hutchins said the department has received various tips regarding the shooting but encourage anyone with more information to come forward by calling the non-emergency number at (918)-259-8400. Callers can also remain anonymous by contacting Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS.
