TULSA, Okla. (KFOR) – Four people are dead, including the suspect, after an active shooting situation at a medical building near a Tulsa hospital Wednesday afternoon, police have confirmed.

Officers were called to the Natalie Building near St. Francis Hospital, Tulsa Police Chief Wendell Franklin confirmed on Twitter. Police say the initial call was for a man armed with a rifle.

“This turned into an active shooter situation,” a Tulsa police spokesperson said in a released statement.

Tulsa Police have confirmed four people are dead, including the suspected shooter. It’s unclear how many people were injured.
