Tulsa Man Shot In Face While Walking With Little Brother

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

A Tulsa man is recovering after police say someone shot him in the face. Officers say they got the call about shots fired just after 4:30 a.m. to an area in the 7100 block of East Newton Street.

Police arrived and found the victim outside a nearby convenience store. Officers say someone shot the man in the face as he has walking down the street with his little brother. The victim went to the hospital; police say he's going to be OK.

Police say they found shell casings along Newton Street, but there's still a lot of information they're trying to figure out at this point. 

EMSA took the victim to the hospital with what police said was a non-life threatening injury. Police say the victim, who has not been identified, was talking when paramedics loaded him in the ambulance.

Authorities say they don't know what led to the shooting, and they've had a hard time finding a motive. We talked with neighbors who say they've seen a lot of crime, and it seems like it's getting closer to home.

"We weren't incredibly startled. We were just kind of afraid of how close it sounded. It was never as close to us as we thought and now, it's right down our street," said Rosa Hernandez.

Police say they've been talking with neighbors and getting different pieces of information. If you know anything, make sure to call police. You can remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS.
