Last night was an electric night in Oklahoma City because the hometown Thunder finally put the Lakers out of their misery and moved on the Western Conference Finals. But an electric night quickly turned into a scary night for Thunder fans as multiple people were reportedly shot in downtown Oklahoma City during post game celebrations.
About 11:35 p.m., shots were reportedly fired on Reno Avenue between Mickey Mantle Drive and Joe Carter Avenue, about three blocks east of Chesapeake Energy Arena.
“Preliminary reports indicate that eight people were shot and one person suffered blunt trauma, and that person was a pregnant woman,” Oklahoma City police Capt. Dexter Nelson said.
One person was shot in the back, another in the upper arm and a third in the hand, according to police radio traffic.
The pregnant woman is thought to have been kicked in the melee, Nelson said.
Two suspected shooters were in custody at the Harkins Bricktown Cinemas before midnight, Oklahoma City police Capt. Lisa Camacho said.
Here’s video from the scene.
