“It’s not everyday you see something like this in the city of Tulsa,” said alarmed cops, “It’s very tough right now, but our detectives are beating the bushes and so are our patrol officers and our gang units.”

Police have not released the other identities as of yet.
The victims injuries were described only as gunshot wounds. Cops say at this point they have no person of interest.
