A gun battle erupts outside a Tulsa hospital Monday evening and Tulsa Police are still looking for the gunmen.

News on 6 reporter Jennifer Loren says it all started with an apparent argument in a neighborhood in the 1200 block of South 73rd East Avenue Monday night.

Officers were called to investigate a shots fired call just before 11 PM. The call indicated a man was shot in the head. But by the time police arrived, he was no where to be found.

Tulsa Police discovered the man’s brother had taken him to St. John Medical Center. They say the shooter apparently followed them to the hospital.

More gunfire was exchanged in the St. John parking lot. Tulsa Police say this time it was the victim's brother firing at the original shooter. No one was injured in the hospital parking lot.

The shooting victim's condition is not known, but we are told his injuries are not critical. Tulsa Police are still looking for both shooting suspects. One was last seen in a Buick, the other, a GEO.
