Donald Trump's campaign stop in Tulsa brought thousands to the Oral Roberts University Mabee Center Wednesday. 

Trump arrived shortly after 1 p.m., but his supporters began flooding the Mabee Center hours earlier.

According to Tulsa Fire Department, which assisted in crowd control, 8,937 people were allotted seating. Event doors were closed once the crowd reached that number. 

A fire official says additional supporters were not allowed inside the event to ensure safety.
