Tulsa police have two men from Thailand in custody following a mass shooting at the Green Country Event Center Saturday night.

Community leaders say the two men are cousins.

Five men were wounded at a private party event held in the 12000 block of East 31st Street. Police say two victims were shot in the torso and the other three had wounds to their arms and legs.

All are expected to survive.

Meng Lee and Boonmlee Lee are in Tulsa County Jail on several complaints including five counts of shooting with intent to kill. Police say they were pursuing a personal vendetta in the shooting.

Police 1, the Tulsa Police helicopter, was instrumental in capturing the suspects, according to arrest reports. The helicopter tracked the car the two men were in and picked up a heat signature from a firearm they apparently threw out of the car when they were pulled over.

When stopped, one of the men in the car was dressed only in boxer shorts as he tried to change his clothing, police said in a news release Sunday.

Both Meng Lee, 19, and Boonmlee, 21, were booked on five complaints of shooting with intent to kill, and possession of a firearm in commission of a felony.

There is an additional firearms possession complaint against Boonmlee Lee.

According to their arrest and booking reports, both men were born in Thailand and currently live in East Tulsa. Witnesses identified the Boonmlee Lee as the shooter, according to police.
