A 37-year-old woman has critical injuries after being shot in the head early Thursday morning in north Tulsa.

Investigators say officers were nearby when they heard seven shots fired on East Young Place, near Booker T. Washington High School.

By the time they arrived on scene, a "large and aggressive" crowd had gathered in the apartment complex. Officers called for backup to help disperse the onlookers, so paramedics could help the victim.

Detectives questioned a few witnesses from the crowd to gather leads. During the investigation, they learned that before the shooting, there was a disturbance involving several women at the complex.

That incident resulted in a stabbing, but the woman who was hurt has not been cooperating with police. Detectives believe that two apartments were involved in the shooting.

At this point, there's no information on any suspects or motive.
