Second Victim of Celebratory Gunfire



Police have discovered a second victim of apparent celebratory gunfire from the Tulsa Freedom Fest Monday night. Officer Leland Ashley says this victim is a 35-year-old man who attended the fireworks display. When walking to his car, he felt a pain and thought someone had thrown something at him.

The hospital staff indicated the wound was consistent with a bullet falling from the sky. A nine-year-old boy who also attended Freedom Fest was hospitalized Monday with a bullet wound to the head. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers.
