TULSA, Oklahoma --  Tulsa Police are investigating a shooting that left one woman dead Friday night.

The shooting happened in the parking lot of the Towne Square Apartments in the 1600 block of East Young Street about 8 p.m.

Tulsa Police Sergeant Brian Hill said the woman was about 25 years old and suffered a gunshot to the torso.  EMSA, who orginally said the victim was 46 years old, later said she was 26 years old.

Police found numerous shell casings at the scene.

"There appears that there were at least five to six shots fired, but we're still investigating the scene to see if we find any more," Sergeant Hill said.

Tulsa Police had to regain control of the crime scene after about 100 people started causing problems and interfering with the crime scene.

Police have little suspect information to go on.

"Right now we are looking for a late model, we think it is some sort of Geo-brand car, occupied by two black males," Sergeant Hill said.

Hill said police believe the Geo was dark in color.  Offficers believe the suspects are in their late teens or early 20's.

Police are trying to determine a motive.  No one else was injured in the shooting.

The woman's name has not been released.
