Four people have been confirmed dead after a gunman opened fire on them in a sad event which reportedly occurred on Wednesday, June 1, at a medical facility in Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA.
The incident which occurred near St Francis Hospital left multiple victims on the second floor of the medical building and the primary shooter dead, Tulsa police said in a statement.
Tulsa Police Department Deputy Chief Eric Dalgleish said the motive of the killer has not been established yet while speaking to reporters.
It was unclear what prompted the deadly assault in Tulsa, Dalgleish said.
“It appears both weapons at one point or another were fired on the scene,” Dalgleish said.
“The officers who arrived were hearing shots in the building, and that’s what led them to the second floor.”
Police responded to the call about three minutes after dispatchers received the report at 4:52 p.m. and made contact with the gunman roughly five minutes later, at 5:01 p.m. Dalgleish said.
“I was very happy with what we know so far regarding the response of our officers,” Dalgleish said.
