OKLAHOMA CITY -

A 16-year-old girl was taken to the hospital in serious condition Friday, after being shot at an apartment complex near S.E. 59th Street and Sunnylane in Oklahoma City.

Police say the gunman is a 16-year-old boy who was found beaten following the shooting. Neighbors say the boy was beaten so badly he began to have a seizure. News 9 was on the scene as the boy was put into an ambulance. Dozens of people gathered to watch the violence.

"I think they could have pretty much pulverized him into the ground," witness Enoch New said.

New says he saw the boy walking through his neighborhood, which is about five blocks from the shooting location.

"About five cars pulled up with 12 or 15 people going after [him]," New said.

Neighbors say they're not surprised to learn police believe the shooting is gang-related. Police are still searching for a motive and a person who could be seen as both an attacker and a hero.

"We do not have suspects in the beating at this point," Lt. Trevor Taylor with Oklahoma City Police said.

Witnesses on the scene pointed out a suspect in the beating to police. Officers talked to the man, but did not arrest him.

The 16-year-old girl remains hospitalized. The suspect has been released from the hospital and is in police custody.
