May 22, 2012 - 5:00 am
Shots were fired in downtown Oklahoma City shortly after the Thunder knocked out the Lakers in Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinals Tuesday night.
Oklahoma City police Capt. Lisa Camacho said two suspected shooters were in custody by midnight. At least eight people were shot and five were taken to the OU Medical Center, according to police, including one person that was shot in the back, one in the upper arm and one other in the hand. Oklahoma City police Capt. Dexter Nelson said that a pregnant woman suffered blunt trauma and is thought to have been kicked during the shootings. '€œEverything is very, very preliminary. We still don'€™t know the actual number of victims. We believe that one person is critical, and the other injuries are not believed to be life-threatening,'€ Nelson said.
Following the shootings, police closed down the area from Mickey Mantle Drive to Lincoln Boulevard and south to the Bricktown Canal, which is about three blocks away from Chesapeake Energy Arena, the home of the Thunder.
