TULSA -- Police are searching for a man after a shooting in midtown Tulsa Saturday morning.

Just before 3 in the morning Saturday, witnesses called police after hearing multiple gunshots near 21st Street and Sheridan Road.

Witnesses told police they didn't see the gunman. One resident of a nearby apartment complex was taken to the hospital with a gunshot wound.

"The lucky part for us is that the shots were outside instead of inside, but still it could have been a whole lot worse than what it was," said Captain Malcolm Williams with the Tulsa Police department.

Police are asking that anyone with information contact Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS.
