Eight people were shot Monday night just blocks from the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City as large crowds were leaving the playoff game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Oklahoma City Thunder, police said.
Authorities were trying to determine what led to the shootings that occurred at about 11:35 p.m., said Capt. Dexter Nelson of the Oklahoma City Police Department.
Of the victims, one was in critical condition and seven suffered less severe injuries, Nelson said.
Also, a woman was injured when she was punched and kicked in the crowded streets, authorities said.
They just reported the woman who was injured when she was punched and kicked in the crowded streets, was pregnant....
It’s a good thing OKC won. Imagine how many would have been shot had they not.
This isn’t the Oklahoma that dug victims out of the rubble of the OKC bombing and the F5 tornado.
Then again, there wasn’t an NBA franchise there when those happened.
Its like the animals target pregnant women sometimes.
That was fast....
Emergency Medical Services Authority spokeswoman Lara O’Leary said seven people were taken to a hospital with gunshot wounds and that a pregnant woman was also taken to the hospital after she was assaulted in the scuffle.
Funny, I don't think cops feel outnumbered by 8,000 people at a tennis match or a Tea Party rally.
The last air show I went to, had at least 15k people, and I don’t recall any fights, anyone being assaulted, or mass shooting victims. Trying to wrap my head around people beating, kicking and punching some pregnant woman at an air show.
No, neighborhood watch volunteers.
I want to have that conversation about race he said we were too cowardly to have.
LOL of the day.
Actually, this whole "Oklahoma Thunder" thing is a vicious sham.
Just imagine what’ll happen in EVERY city and town in America the day that George Zimmerman walks out of court a free man.
:o)..... Insensitive yet a giggle. Glad the Okie lady is ok.
It’ll be interesting, especially after the President of the United States, the Florida prosecutor and her mob and most of the media painted Zim as a guilty racist nut job.
According to the story at the link two have been arrested and the cops aren’t saying a word. There is a video taken by cell phone posted there. Quite a large number of Holder’s people there.
Actually, it’s very old American—Aztec human sacrifices to the basketball gods.
The Amish are at it again!!!
” Funny, I don’t think cops feel outnumbered by 8,000 people at a tennis match or a Tea Party rally. “
Yeah.....funny how that is..
Amish cowboys, pissed off because the HOF was closed when the game ended
The 2 arrested last nite were picked up on traffic warrants and not for the shooting. There was an arrest made this afternoon - 19 yr old gang banger with 3 felony arrests/pending court cases since Jan 2012. A one man crime wave.
Word is the shooting was gang related - 8Balls and Prince Hill Gangs. Apparently there was a disagreement that escalated and someone pulled a gun. Most, if not all of the victims were involved the fight.
There was graduation ceremony for one of the local high schools full of Holders people so the crowd was a lot tougher than usual. Our idiot mayor wants OKC to be a “Big League City”. We became one last night. Same $#!+ that goes in Oakland, and Chicago........red
And I paraphrase..... "Amish, PLEASE!"
Looks like they had lots of students there in OK.
