TULSA, Okla. — Authorities are investigating after a suspect allegedly shot their former roommate in north Tulsa, according to the Tulsa Police Department.

It happened Thursday afternoon near East Independence Street and North Richmond Drive. The suspect shot the victim in the shoulder, police said. The victim is expected to be okay.

Police said they took the suspect into custody.

Authorities described the details surrounding the case as "very convoluted."
