Tulsa Police are investigating two shooting incidents early Tuesday morning.

Police say the first incident involved a man who showed up at a Tulsa hospital with a gunshot wound. They say it is related to an incident at a motel on North Garnett.

Officers got a call about a disturbance at the Motel 6 near I-244 and Garnett at about 12:30 a.m.  Motel patrons told police they heard a gunshot in one of the rooms and saw a dark-colored pickup truck driving away at a high rate of speed.

Police say a short time later, Lucas Knight, 25, was dropped off at Hillcrest Medical Center's ER suffering from a gunshot wound.

Police say someone in a pickup truck that matched the description of the one seen leaving the motel brought Knight to the hospital then drove off.  

Tulsa Police believe the driver was 44-year-old Donald Hallett. They say Hallett is driving a 2008 Chevrolet Colorado pickup with Oklahoma tag 847-HLS. Police believe he has a Glock handgun. He is a white male, 6 feet tall and weighing 200 pounds with brown hair.

Police say they don't know what led to the shooting.

In a separate incident, a 26-year-old man bleeding from a gunshot wound knocked on several doors in a south Tulsa apartment complex before he found someone to call 911.

That happened at 12:45 a.m. at the Arbors of Southern Hills Apartments near 67th and Zunis.

Tulsa Police say Ezedrick Evans and his girlfriend got into a fight in the parking lot. Officers say Evans was using a pipe during the fight, before the woman got away and called a friend for help.

A few minutes later, another man drove up and confronted Evans. That is when he was shot according to police.

"During the scuffle shots were fired, an adult male was hit we think once or maybe twice in the abdomen," said Tulsa Police Cpl. Andrew MacKenzie.

EMSA took Evans to a Tulsa hospital.

Tulsa Police say the girlfriend and the shooter took off in a car. They returned a short time later, but police say neither is being helpful with the investigation into the incident and shooting.
