Shooting victim drives himself to hospital; suspect later arrested
Tulsa police arrested a suspect in a shooting after the victim drove his bullet-riddled car to the Saint Francis Hospital emergency room on Saturday night.
Officers arrived at the hospital about 8:30 p.m. after staff told police the victim had arrived and security held the victim's car at the ER entrance, according to a news release issued Sunday.
The car's driver's side door reportedly had at least seven bullet holes. The victim was reportedly not totally cooperative with officers, but said the suspect was on the other end of a reported love triangle.
The victim had dated a woman who previously dated the suspect in the shooting, police said. The woman and suspect then started dating again, but the victim was still talking to the woman, according to a police news release.
The suspect reportedly called the victim and asked to talk with him about the issue at a park near Admiral Boulevard and Mingo Road. When the suspect arrived, he reportedly opened fire on the victim's car.
Police later located the suspect, who was not named in the news release, and he was arrested on a complaint of shooting with intent to kill.
