Three men opened fire on another after a fender bender in the parking lot of a south Tulsa bar, according to police. The shooting took place just after 1:30 a.m. near 71st and Memorial.

Police say a man was leaving Cronies Bar when he got into a minor collision with another vehicle in the parking lot. When they got out to look at the damage, the two groups got into an argument. Three men in an orange vehicle at one point pulled out guns and started shooting, the victim told police.

Officers got a call of shots fired in the area, and when they were investigating that, TPD got a call that the shooting victim had driven himself to Saint Francis Hospital. He'd been shot in the back while trying to get away, according to Tulsa Police.

Sergeant Justin Farley said 10 to 20 shots were fired.

The man is expected to survive the wound. Police are investigating the shooting.
