TULSA, OK - The Tulsa Police Department says a 15-year-old boy was shot in the head in what may have been a drive-by.

Officers say there's not a lot of information right now.

What they do know is that the 15-year-old was sitting on a sofa in his home when he was hit.

It happened around 9:00 Sunday night in the 4600 block of North Elgin.

The boy was rushed to the hospital in critical condition.

Police are collecting evidence at the scene, including shell casings.

"Somebody called in and said they heard tires screeching, but that's gonna be about the extent of our witness statements right now. We're interviewing the family members that were in the house at the time, but of course all the blinds or the drapes were closed," said Capt. Shawn King, Tulsa Police.

If you know anything call Crime Stoppers at 596-COPS.
