TULSA, Oklahoma -

Two men opened fire on a crowd leaving a mid-town Tulsa bar at closing time Friday night, according to Tulsa Police. It happened outside the Gold Mine Lounge on 31st Street just west of Sheridan at about 2 a.m.

Corporal Jerrod Hart told News On 6 two men in the parking lot got out of a Ford SUV and started shooting. One bar patron was shot in the inner thigh, he said.

Hart said the victim was visiting Tulsa from Chicago and had no idea why anyone would shoot at him. The man and his friend, also from Chicago, ran to a nearby QuikTrip and called for an ambulance.

"He got hit one time in the left leg. It didn't look like anything serious at this point in time," Hart said.

Hart said the man ran into the bathroom, leaving a trail of blood through the convenience store.

"He was kind of panicky, not knowing if it was life threatening or not," Hart said. EMSA medics reassured the man that he would be OK, and he was taken to the hospital.

Police found three shell casings in the parking lot. Witnesses said the shooters were in a dark Ford Excursion or Explorer, but there was little description of the men.

If you know anything about the crime, call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS.
