Oklahoma: Four people lost their lives in the latest shooting episode at a medical center that has sent new shock waves across the United States of America.
According to the authorities, a gunman opened fire at the St. Francis health system campus on Friday resulting in the death of four people, and several others were injured.
The gunman used two firearms. The authorities responded immediately as soon as they received the call of a gunman firing gunshots in a medical center.
Tulsa police department Deputy Chief Eric Dalgleish conducted a press conference after the episode ended in a drop scene.
Deputy Chief Eric Dalgleish confirmed the number of deceased and also stated that the suspected shooter is dead, apparently, he died of a self-inflicted gunshot.
Wednesday episode of the mass massacre in Oklahoma has sent new shock waves across America as this incident took place soon after the two other high-profile massacres that took place in the month of May; one at Buffalo, New York where 10 black people lost their lives and another sad gruesome killing of 19 children and two teachers that took place in elementary school in Uvalde, Texas.
Dalgleish shared gruesome details of the deadly attack which took place on the second floor of the St. Francis health system’s Natalie building. The shooter and the victims were discovered there. He further stated that the shooter had a long gun or a rifle along with a handgun. Both weapons were used to fire shots and were recovered from the scene.
The Natalie building of the medical center is known to serve as a surgery center and a breast health center along with an orthopedic clinic.
The entire hospital was shut down after the mass shooting incident.
Four people were confirmed dead in the shooting incident along with the gunman and several people were injured. The authorities have not released the identity of the victims and the injured.
The motive behind the shooting incident is still unknown.
“It wasn’t random,” said Tulsa Police Capt. Richard Meulenberg. “This wasn’t an individual who just decided he wanted to go find a hospital full of random people. He deliberately made a choice to come here and his actions were deliberate.”
Police describe the scene at the medical center as “catastrophic“. The call for stricter gun possession and monitoring law has started to echo in the senate and now in the streets as well. The Biden government has undergone immense pressure to solve this issue because of the back-to-back mass shooting incidents across America which are becoming more common than ever before.
