Tulsa Police shooting under investigation

It happened in midtown Saturday evening. Tulsa Police say they were alerted to a man walking down the street with what appeared to be a sawed off shotgun protruding from his clothing. An officer encountered the suspect near 32nd and Sheridan at about 6:00pm.

Police were first called to the 40th & Sheridan area but were unable to locate the suspect, then an officer saw a man matching the description a short time later.

A Tulsa Police spokesperson says the man refused to cooperate with commands so the officer fired. Police did not say how many shots were fired. The man was taken to a hospital, he is expected to live.

His name and condition have not been released.
