Oklahoma High School Homecoming Game Shooting Leaves 1 Teen Dead, 1 Critically Injured

A shooting at an Oklahoma high school football game has left one teenager dead and another in critical condition.

Authorities say the suspect is still at large.

The incident occurred just before 10 p.m. at McLain High School in Tulsa. Police responded to calls of a shooting during McLain’s homecoming football game in front of a crowd of hundreds against Miami High School, ABC News reported.

Officers found two teenage victims suffering from gunshot wounds, one a 17-year-old male who was pronounced dead at the scene and another 17-year-old victim who was immediately taken to a local hospital and listed in critical condition.

The teen has since improved to stable condition, the Tulsa Police Department confirmed.

“Dozens of officers converged in the area assisting with crowd control and looking for the suspect,” said the Tulsa Police Department. “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.”

The incident didn’t happen at the actual game but reportedly near the school’s tennis court area, KTUL reported.

Police say that the suspect is still at large and is believed to be armed and dangerous. The only description they have of the alleged suspect is that he is a 17-year-old Black male.

Capt. Richard Meulenberg released a statement following the shooting, saying this was just one of four homicides in the city on Friday alone. He also confirmed that authorities were able to secure surveillance camera footage of the shooting. Still, authorities are unsure if either of the victims are students at McLain High School.

“Homicide detectives are actively working this case,” said the Tulsa Police Department. “We hope that of the hundreds of people here, some will come forward and help with this investigation.”
