Tulsa Police are investigating two separate shootings that occurred overnight Saturday.

The first happened around 1:15 Saturday morning near East 35th Place.

Corporal Kyle Straight with Tulsa Police said they responded to a neighborhood where several shots were reported. Witnesses said an 18-year-old was shot and taken to the hospital.

Straight said the victim arrived with non-life threatening wounds.

Police found several shell casings in the road.

The second shooting happened about 45 minutes later at the Cloud 9 Gentlemen's Club.

Officer Billy Hursh said a man in the club was hit in the elbow by a shot fired from outside the building.

Hursh said police don't think the shot was meant for anyone specific, but said they are still trying to gather more information.

“There was a bit of confusion at first with people trying to get information and not really knowing where the shot had come from, but once we found the shell casing outside and found the bullet holes it became pretty clear,” Hursh said.

EMSA said the victim is a 24-year-old male who was in serious condition.

Police confirmed the bullet went through the first victim and struck another person inside the club in the chest. They said because the bullet lost energy it fell into his lap after hitting his chest.
