At least five dead, including shooter, and several wounded in shooting in Tulsa

At least five people have been killed and several wounded Wednesday in a shooting at a hospital in the U.S. city of Tulsa (Oklahoma), in which the assailant has lost his life, local police said.

“We can confirm 4 people are deceased, including the shooter, in the active shooting situation at St. Francis hospital campus. Officers are still clearing the building.,” Tulsa deputy police chief Eric Dalgleish has told the media. Dalgleish has specified that the first investigations point out that the assailant shot himself.

He explained that the shooting occurred on the second floor of the building, located in the Saint Francis Hospital facility in Tulsa.

According to City Councilman Jayme Fowler, the assailant, who was carrying a rifle and a pistol, was looking for a doctor who was working in the building, although the police have not confirmed this information.

Dalgleish said that the identity of the gunman, a man between 35 and 40 years old, who arrived at the hospital at 16.40 local time, is still unknown.
He also indicated that detectives are questioning witnesses to try to determine the details of what happened.

This new shooting takes place while the country continues to recover from the massacre that occurred last May 24, when 19 children and two teachers were shot dead by an 18 year-old at a school in Uvalde (Texas), where the assailant was later killed by the police.

The President of the United States, Joe Biden, promised Tuesday that he will meet with members of Congress to discuss the issue of gun control, after what happened in Uvalde, the deadliest school shooting in the United States since Sandy Hook, in which 27 people were killed in December 2012.
