TULSA - Police arrested two suspects in north Tulsa shooting and chase Tuesday afternoon.

Arnold Briggs, 19, was taken into custody on counts of discharging a firearm from a moving vehicle after the shooting in the 800 block of East 54th Street North.

Officials said they chased the suspects they believed were involved in the shooting to the 2000 block of North Frankfort, where the suspects' yellow vehicle wrecked and then caught fire. Another vehicle, a white 2003 Windstar Ford van left the scene. Three men bailed out of that vehicle after a chase. Briggs was one of those. He was captured; the other two fled.

The second suspect arrested has not been identified. Police said two other suspects are still at large.

EMSA said the victim, who was shot in the shoulder, was transported to a hospital emergent.

Police say around 3:15 Tuesday a shooting occurred in a north Tulsa neighborhood that left bullet holes in houses, vehicles and in one man's shoulder. The victim has not been identified.

Multiple shell casings were located at the scene of the shooting. Two houses had bullet holes and people were at home during this shooting.
