TULSA, Okla. — A gunfight at the Pheasant Run Apartments sent two people to the hospital last night.

Around 10:15 p.m. on Thursday, Tulsa police responded to a call near 36th and S. Peoria where two shooting victims were calling for help.

Officers found a man who had been shot in the chest and a woman who had been shot in the arm. They both say the shooting happened at Pheasant Run Apartments, a complex near 71st and Riverside, but drove to a gas station on Peoria to call for help.

TPD then drove to the apartment complex and found two men who were cleaning up the suspected crime scene that was surrounded by shell casings. The men say they caught the two victims breaking into their car so they shot at them.

The shooting victims claim they were dropping someone off at the complex and not breaking into any cars.

The two shooting victims were taken to the hospital and are expected to survive.
