Tulsa police and the Oklahoma Highway Patrol are searching for a man on the run after shots reportedly were fired at an apartment complex on Friday night.

For about an hour, Interstate 244 lanes were shut down so investigators could track the suspect. The lanes all have reopened.

The suspect was believed to be in a wooded area behind the Ivy Place Apartments near I-244 and Garnett Road.

Tulsa police say it started when the man began shooting his gun into the air. Investigators believe he may have been under the influence of some kind of drug.

They say they know his identity, but they are not releasing that information to the public.

He was still at large at 10 p.m.
