TULSA, Okla. — A 15-year-old girl is in the hospital after being shot by a 17-year-old Tuesday night.

Police say the girl was found shot in the calve at the Seminole Hills apartments, and they believe her injuries aren't life-threatening.

The victim told police that she was at the playground around 11 p.m. when two men walked up to her and started arguing. She said one of them pulled out a gun and fired two rounds at her, hitting her once.

A Tulsa police helicopter responded to the scene and reported seeing two people running from the apartments toward a drainage ditch under Highway 75.

A police K-9 tracked the adult and teen down.

Officers arrested a 17-year-old for his involvement in the shooting.

TPD said the teen told them where the gun he hid the gun he used. When going to retrieve the gun, two vehicles pulled up full of people who appeared to be looking for the gun as well, police said.

TPD then found an AR-15 in one of the vehicles, a stolen Smith and Wesson 9mm in the other, and the gun believed to be used in the shooting, officers said.

Keneth McVay was arrested for obstruction.
