Shooting Leaves Two People Dead After Record Release Party
OKLAHOMA CITY, OK-- Two people are dead after an early morning shooting in Northwest Oklahoma City.
Oklahoma City Police say the shooting happened at about 2:45 AM near "The Pulse" Event Center on the 6900-block of Northwest Expressway.
"I just saw lots of ambulances, it was pretty crazy," said Leroy Richardson, who passed by the scene as he walked home from work, "and they were just shooting down there really fast."
Lt. Gamille Hardin of Oklahoma City Police Department says two victims were pronounced dead at the scene, one other victim was transported to an area hospital. Hardin says the third victim is in good condition, but did not release any names.
Hardin says there was an altercation inside "The Pulse" before the shooting happened. She says there was a record release party at the event center. Several gunshots were fired in the parking lot after the party.
The gunshots left several bullet holes in the window of a beauty supply store next to "The Pulse."
"We hear gunshots quite a bit, but no killings," said Patrick Calloway, a neighbor who heard the commotion as police searched for a gunman.
Police tell Fox-25 the suspected gunman is still on the loose. Hardin says the suspect took off from the scene in what appeared to be a small white Mercedes.

Tennessee sends search and rescue team to Oklahoma
May 21, 2013 16:19 GMT
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- A Tennessee-based team of emergency service workers has gone to Oklahoma to help with tornado recovery.
Memphis Fire Department spokesman Wayne Cooke said that Tennessee Task Force 1 left early Tuesday from Memphis.
Cooke says the 80-member team will mostly help with search and rescue efforts after powerful and deadly tornadoes struck cities in Oklahoma on Sunday and Monday. Emergency crews are digging through the rubble of destroyed structures to find trapped people.
The team is bringing search dogs and semi-trailers loaded with equipment to help dig through collapsed structures and perform other duties. Cooke says the team consists of emergency personnel from around Tennessee.
The task force was one of several teams that deployed to areas affected by Hurricane Sandy last October.
