Six people were taken into custody after police say shots were fired in south Tulsa, endangering residents.

Police say just after 6 p.m. Sunday, they were called to 121st and Yale Avenue after receiving reports of shots fired near the river.

After hearing the gin go off several times, police say the shots sounded like an automatic weapon.

Police say an officer on scene also heard rounds coming toward him. Multiple agencies began blocking off streets in an effort to keep people in the area safe.

Three adult males and three juveniles were taken in for questioning. Police were able to recover several weapons.

"Those that have automatic weapons have to have a class three license so if it is fully automatic that's when the investigation will determine, does this guy have a class three license or not, and then proceed from right there," said Cpl. Dan Miller with the Tulsa Police Department.

The Tulsa County Sheriff's Office has issued reckless discharge citations to the suspects.
