TULSA, Oklahoma -- Tulsa Police said an argument over a video game led to a shooting at a Tulsa home Wednesday night.

Police were called to a home in the 2400 block of North Rockford Avenue about 9 p.m.

Officers arrived to find a man with gunshot wounds to his back.  Police said the man, in his early 20s, was taken to the hospital.

Police said the victim and another man were playing video games when an argument broke out.

"We have a couple of witnesses that stated that there was a video game going on of some sort, apparently an altercation broke out and both of the suspects or victims started shooting at one another," Sergeant Brian Hill said.

Police believe the other man was also shot, but said he took off before officers arrived.

The victim could only identify the other man by the name "Peezo." Tulsa Police said Thursday morning that "Peezo" has not been located, and the shooting victim is expected to survive his wounds.
