TULSA, Oklahoma -- Tulsa Police are investigating a shooting at a north Tulsa park Thursday afternoon that sent two people to the hospital.

Police say a fight broke out during a basketball game at the Lacy Park recreation center and spilled into the center's parking lot. 

Tulsa Police Captain Karen Tipler said two men were playing basketball when they got into a heated argument. They went to the parking lot and got guns, probably from their vehicles, and multiple shots were fired. 

Those gunshots hit cars and houses near the park in the 2100 block of North Madison. 

The two shooting victims showed up at two Tulsa hospital emergency rooms. Neither was seriously injured.

Officers located at least 43 shell casings at the park.
