TULSA, Oklahoma -- EMSA transported four victims from the scene of a reported shooting near I-44 and 129th East Avenue Friday night in what may have been a gang-related shooting.

All four male victims were and transported in serious condition, according to EMSA. One of victims is 18-years-old, the other three ages are not known.

Tulsa Police Sergeant Eric Nelson said five young men in a cream-colored Cadillac were in the 1600 block of South 122nd East Avenue when another vehicle pulled up behind them. Someone started firing rounds into the Cadillac, wounding four of the men.

The driver stopped in the 300 block of South 129th East Avenue and called emergency services.

Nelson said the victims were between the ages of 18 and 22. Two had been shot in the back and the others in the shoulder and arms. The wounds were believed to be non-life threatening.

So far police had recovered seven rounds from outside the vehicle but were still investigating Friday night.

Earlier in the evening, Nelson said a car matching the Cadillac's description had been seen at 46th and Peoria. A young man was hanging out of the window of the Cadillac, firing a weapon.

"This vehicle matches the description of that cream-colored Cadillac," Nelson said.

The suspect vehicle is believed to be a Chevy Tahoe of unknown color.

"Our victims are not real cooperative at this point," Nelson said.

The fifth man in the Cadillac, who was not wounded, was taken to the detective division for questioning.
