Police investigate drive-by shooting in northeast Oklahoma City

OKLAHOMA CITY - Police are investigating a drive-by shooting in northeast Oklahoma City.

The shooting was reported around 9:15 p.m. on Saturday night in the 1000 block of N.E. 4th St.

Police said two men got into an argument after a Juneteenth celebration. Junteenth is a celebration for the end of slavery in America.

Reportedly, one of the men left but returned about 30 minutes later with a gun.

Police said that's when the suspect shot the victim.

The suspect then reportedly drove into another man.

Police said both victims were transported to a local hospital but are expected to be okay.

A woman who was nearby says crime in the area is becoming more common.

"It's just another day, unfortunately. Sadly, it's just another day," she said.

The first victim was later found to have an active warrant for a domestic strangulation case and now has a hospital guard.

Police also believe the incident was gang related.
