Victim in Stable Condition after North Tulsa Shooting
A victim is now in stable condition after a suffering multiple gunshot wounds Saturday evening.
Tulsa Police responded to the 1100 block of North Boston Place a little after 7 p.m. after a reported confrontation between individuals that resulted in a shooting.
According to witnesses, the victim and another unknown suspect armed with an assault rifle pulled into a driveway of a home at 1135 N. Boston Pl. and then engaged the people in the home in a gun fight.
"Don't know what precipitated that. Don't know whether he was defending himself or what, but shots were fired between the people in the house and the passenger and that's how the victim got shot," said Capt. Steve Odom with TPD.
The victim, who was driving, was reportedly hit by bullets in the gun fight and tried to drive away, but did not make it far. The victim was identified as Adrian Campbell, 29.
"When they arrived they saw there was a small grey car with an occupant who had been shot several times. It appears once in the head and maybe in the neck," Capt. Odom said.
The passenger exited the vehicle and fled. He has not yet been located.
No one was inside this home when officers arrived, but evidence shows the residents of the house used their own assault rifle to shoot into the street. Officers believe this was no random shooting.
"It is probably unusual that somebody would just pull into a random residence and start shooting. So there was probably some kind of relationship. Have no idea if it was gang related, drug related, domestic related or just an ongoing argument. We have no idea at this time," Capt. Odom said.
The victim was initially transported to the hospital in critical condition, but sergeant Dave Walker told KTUL he is in stable condition now.
Officers are still investigating the incident. The motive for the shooting is not yet known and detectives are waiting for Campbell to recover so he can explain the events.
Campbell is no stranger to law enforcement. He has served time in prison and is currently charged with possession of a firearm after a conviction felony and possession of a controlled drug with intent to distribute.
Anyone with information regarding the shooting is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-2677.
