A teenager is shot at a south Tulsa Apartment complex overnight. Just after midnight, someone called 911 after shots were fired at the Saint Thomas Square Apartments near 61st and Peoria. When Tulsa Police got to the scene, officers found a 19-year old victim who had been shot three times.

Police are now looking for a suspect in the case.

Tulsa Police say this shooting is just the latest in a series of violent crimes in this part of Tulsa.

"We have been out here quite a bit lately and our specialty units have been made aware of that. We're going to try to increase our presence out here in the complex," says Tulsa Police Captain Dave Roberts.

Tulsa Police say the victim was standing in the parking lot when he was shot. The victim was rushed to a Tulsa hospital in critical condition.

The victim's name was not released.
