Police have canceled an Amber Alert issued late Thursday afternoon following a shooting in north Tulsa.

Two children who had been reported missing have been found safe, according to police. The Amber Alert was initially issued after officers were dispatched to a shooting around 5 p.m. Thursday near North Yale Avenue and East Apache Street.

According to police, the shooting was a result of a domestic dispute between two older white males.

The victim was shot two times in the leg and was transported to the hospital. Police say he is expected to be OK.

The suspect, Jason Myers Jordan, is a white male in his 40s last seen wearing a green and white shirt with blue jeans, according to police.

Police say Jordan abducted his two children from their home near East Apache Street and North Yale Avenue. He had the children with him in the car, and officers issued an Amber Alert. Jordan was driving a 2005 tan Acura LS 4-door with dark tinted windows.

Police say Jordan actually gave the kids to his sister around 6 p.m., but she didn't realize they had been reported missing. She later heard about the Amber Alert and took the kids to a QuikTrip near 11th and Highway 169. She then found an officer and told them she had the kids and had not been aware of the Amber Alert, according to police.

The kids stayed with Jordan's sister the entire time, police say.

Shortly after 9 p.m. Thursday, police located the car in the area of 1300 North Winston Avenue. The suspect ran away on foot.

Tulsa police believed the children were in danger based on Jordan's reckless behavior and past criminal history. Officers said Jordan threatened to have a shootout with police earlier in the evening.

Police say they now believe Jordan is driving a 2000 black Jeep Grand Cherokee 4-door.

The vehicle tag is OK#EUC433.
