One Dead/One Hospitalized in Tulsa Shooting

Tulsa, OK – Man shoots woman, kills self at Tulsa hair salon

TULSA, Okla. (AP) Police in Tulsa say a gunman entered a hair salon and shot his former girlfriend and then took his own life.

Investigators say the 27-year-old man went into a SportClips salon at the Tulsa Hills Shopping Center on Thursday and told employees to get out. He then shot a 29-year-old woman twice.

The man then locked himself in a back room at the business. Police found him dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound about two hours after the 3:30 p.m. incident began.

Officials say the victim was in serious condition. Police didn't name the shooter or the victim.

Workers at the salon say they were told to not discuss the incident with reporters.

Tulsa Fire Department spokesman Tim Smallwood says the woman had wounds to her neck and right arm.
