Tulsa World - - Our Lives - — From staff re­ports

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.
