Tulsa Police are investigating after a shooting victim was found lying in the street near 19th and Riverside.

One suspect is still outstanding.

Police said they believe the victim was driving and was shot in the leg through the driver’s side door, then, continued driving until he got to a park at 19th and Riverside. There, police believe he got out of the car and started bleeding out on the road.

EMSA was originally the one who notified police about the shooting.

Officers said the man was unresponsive and transported to the hospital in critical condition.

Tulsa Police said there were two other people in the truck with him, a man and a woman, and when they got to the park, they got out and started walking away. Officers were able to find the two witnesses and took them to the station for statements.

Tulsa Police are looking for a suspect but can't give a description at this time, however, they do believe this could be connected to another shooting.

“They are trying to link this up with another call that we have that could be related. The investigation is ongoing,” Captain Shellie Seibert said.

Police are asking people who live nearby to avoid the area while they investigate.

They ask anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS.
