TULSA, OK -- Tulsa Police were called early Wednesday to a report of multiple shots fired at a bar in east Tulsa.

The shooting happened at about 1 a.m at Torchy's Saloon near 31st & Mingo.

Police say a fight began inside the bar and shortly after, someone opened fire. One man was shot in the shoulder, but police say he is expected to be okay.

Two other bar patrons were treated for minor injuries after being hit with either chairs or bottles.

"Right now we don't have good information as far as exactly how many suspects. All the victims are very intoxicated and they're trying to get treated for their wounds and aren't giving us much information yet," said Tulsa Police Captain Brett Bailey.

Bailey says about eight to 10 shots were fired in all.

Tulsa Police say they've received multiple calls concerning violence in that area and now have special patrols on duty during the early morning hours.
