Tulsa Police continue their investigation into a shooting that shut down an east Tulsa fast food restaurant late Monday night.

Police say four men met behind a McDonalds at 333 South 129th East Avenue. An argument broke out and one man shot another in the leg. The wounded man limped into the restaurant and collapsed. The other three left in a two-door white car.

Tulsa Police Sgt Curtis Thompson: "Apparently, he met these suspects here to buy a car from them and other than that, we're not sure how legitimate the transaction was going to be, but he did bring cash to buy the vehicle so that may have been part of the problem. They may have had other intentions from the beginning."

The wounded man was taken to the hospital and will be alright.

The restaurant has reopened.
