TULSA, Okla. -

Monday, detectives searched for the gunman from a shooting that happened overnight near North Harvard and Apache that sent three teens to the hospital. 

“At this time, the information that we have is that there was not another car involved but that the shooter might have been standing on the side of the road or maybe in a home," said Captain Richard Meulenberg.

Captain Meulenberg said officers received several calls about gun shots Sunday night.

“The caller reported multiple rounds were fired. So, officers responded to the area and what we found was this car full of juveniles. Initially we see that the car was shot up multiple times," sad Captain Meulenberg.

He said three of the teens were taken to the hospital for gunshot wounds and are expected to be OK.

Police said all of the people inside the car were between the ages of 14 to 16-years-old. 

“The driver was 15-years-old. So, they could have been out just enjoying the night. Clearly the 15-year-old doesn’t have a drivers license, so it’s really incumbent on us to know what our children are doing," said Meulenberg.

Police believe there was just one gunman, a pedestrian, who shot at the teens while they were driving in the neighborhood near Apache and Harvard.

“Even though none of the occupants lost their life fortunately, this case is still going to be investigated in our homicide unit because of the multiple victims," said Captain Meulenberg.
