There is still no arrest following a shooting at a north Tulsa middle school. Investigators say someone took aim at a school groundskeeper while he was mowing the lawn.

The victim felt something hit his arm, and then he looked down and told a co-worker to call 911. Moses Timothy: "I heard a pop and I felt it sting and I looked over and there was that blood already coming out."

Tulsa Police say the shot came from an air rifle. They found the weapon at a house across the street and questioned several people. No one has been arrested.

Police say it's not the first trouble at the residence. They’ve been called there before. Neighbors have reported hearing shots from the house. School officials suspect it's the source of at least one similar incident in the past.
