One teenager has been killed and another injured in a shooting at McLain High School, police say.
Tulsa Police Chief Wendell Franklin tweeted a “police advisory alert” urging people to “stay clear of the area surrounding McLain High School.”
He said officers “are responding to a shooting scene with potentially multiple victims. We are still working to get control of the area and determine additional information.”
McLain, at 4929 N. Peoria Ave., hosted Miami High School for a football game Friday night.
The shootings occurred just before 10 p.m. at McLain’s Homecoming game, the Tulsa Police Department said in a post on its Facebook page.
“When Officers arrived, we found two victims amongst the crowd of hundreds. One 17-year-old male was pronounced dead at the scene. Another 17-year-old was taken to a local hospital in critical condition, but has improved to stable condition at this time,” the post says.
“Dozens of Officers converged in the area assisting with crowd control and looking for the suspect. Our K-9 Unit and several Officers scoured the nearby neighborhoods as we believe the suspect took off on foot. Unfortunately, the trail went cold.”
Police at the scene said no weapon was recovered, and the Facebook post says police consider the shooter to be armed and dangerous. They think he also is 17 years old, according to the post.
Police hope that of the hundreds of people at the game, some will come forward and help with the investigation.
Anyone with any information about the shooting is asked to call the Tulsa Police Department’s nonemergency number, 918-596-9222.
McLain reportedly was defeated by one point by Miami High School, with the final score 19-18.

Tulsa County District Attorney Steve Kunzweiler issued a statement Tuesday evening, saying that, “unfortunately today, I found myself in a situation that I hoped would never happen. Fortunately, my injuries are such that I was able to go home.”

The day after the district attorney was stabbed by a family member, he said the 2015 fatal stabbing of then-state Labor Commissioner Mark Costello by his son should have sent a message to the state Legislature that things needed to change when it comes to mental health funding.

TPD said officers were working to clear the building even after the suspect was announced as taken into custody.

The shooting occurred Friday evening at the Echo Trail apartments, just east of U.S. 169 between 61st and 71st streets.

David Menna, 65, is now accused of exploitation of a vulnerable adult in Bixby, two years after an investigative news story brought national attention to claims of child sexual abuse spanning 15 years in multiple states.

The resident reportedly had confronted a burglar who had pried open a window and climbed into a back room of the house on 14th Street near Florence Place, according to police.

Terryl Raysean Brooks, 23, was traced to separate discoveries of dead women in east, north and midtown Tulsa. His attorney says Brooks has exhibited paranoid schizophrenic and delusional behavior.

Authorities said they located a pill press and ventilation system, thousands of pills, cash and 19 firearms, including three AR-15 rifles, an AK-47 and an Uzi machine gun.
