At Least 3 Dead in Shooting at Medical Building in Oklahoma 

Three people were killed Wednesday in a shooting at a medical building on a hospital campus in the Midwestern U.S. state of Oklahoma, a police captain said. 

Captain Richard Meulenberg confirmed the number of dead. He said the suspect was dead as well. 

It was unclear how the shooter died. 

“Officers are currently going through every room in the building checking for additional threats,” police said in a Facebook post just before 6 p.m. “We know there are multiple injuries, and potentially multiple casualties.” 

Meulenberg also said multiple people were wounded and that the medical complex was a “catastrophic scene.” 

St. Francis Health System locked down its campus Wednesday afternoon because of the shooting at its Natalie Medical Building. The Natalie building houses an outpatient surgery center and a breast health center. 

Aerial footage from a TV helicopter appeared to show first responders wheeling someone on a stretcher away from the hospital building. 

Dozens of police cars could be seen outside the hospital complex, and authorities closed off traffic as the investigation continued. 

A reunification center for families and their loved ones was set up at a nearby high school. 

Agents from the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were also at the scene, a spokesperson said.
