Hospital Shooting leaves at least four dead and dozens injured

Hospital Shooting

According To Uswhispers Police in Tulsa, Oklahoma, say a shooting at the St. Francis Hospital's Natalie Building on Wednesday left at least four people dead and numerous others injured.

Police received a call just before 5 p.m. local time reporting a man walking around with a rifle near a medical facility. According to Tulsa Police Captain Richard Meulenberg, the situation quickly escalated into an active shooter situation.

Multiple people were found shot on the second floor of the building, including in an orthopaedic office, according to authorities. Authorities initially speculated that the victims were a mix of employees and visitors. On the hospital's grounds, there is a medical building named the Natalie Building.

A few people had been shot, and a couple of them were dead, when officers arrived on the second floor where the shooting was taking place," Meulenberg told ABC News. As a result of his possession of both a long rifle and a pistol, "we found at that time who we believe and still believe to be the shooter."

According to Meulenberg, one of the Tulsa victims died after fleeing the scene in order to get medical help. Exactly how many people were injured in the shooting is unknown, but Meulenberg believes it to be less than ten.

According to Tulsa Deputy Chief Eric Dalgleish, the shooter died from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. A man believed to be between the ages of 35 and 40 is the suspected shooter, according to a police briefing.

Dalgleish believes both weapons were fired. According to him, it's unclear if the suspect was going after anyone in particular.
