At least 3 people were killed in a shooting on the hospital campus in Tulsa, Oklahoma, police say

The shooter is also dead, police said in a Facebook post.
Authorities responded to a call about a man with a rifle at the Natalie Medical Building, a physician office building on the campus of St. Francis Hospital, according to a previous Facebook post from the Tulsa Police Department.

“At this point, we can confirm the shooter is dead,” police said in the post, though it’s unclear if the shooting was self-inflicted.

“Officers are currently scanning all rooms in the building for additional threats,” the post added.

Police were going through “several floors” to clear the building and evacuate victims Wednesday night, Richard Meulenberg said Wednesday, with police adding that there were “hundreds of rooms and hundreds of people in the building.”

“We are treating this as a catastrophic scene right now,” Meulenberg said.

A reunification site has been set up for family members and friends at Memorial High School west of LaFortune Park, police said.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives attends the scene of the shooting, ATF Dallas Field Division said on Twitter.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
