TULSA, Okla. — Police have arrested 23-year-old Andrew Dennehy after he opened fire at the Tulsa County Courthouse Wednesday afternoon. As many as five people have been injured, one of them a Tulsa officer.

Authorities say Dennehy started firing shots into the air on the north side of the courthouse and deputies returned fire hitting the accused gunman.

Authorities say one man is in critical condition, another man in serious condition, a woman is in fair condition and one woman has been treated and released.

One deputy was shot in the hand or arm and is expected to be OK.

A bystander was hit by a stray bullet in the leg and was found in the library across the street where he took shelter.

It is unclear if that bullet was fired by the deputy or Dennehy, the accused gunman.

One other Tulsa officer was injured responding to the shooting. 

The officer drove over a hill where a car pulled in front of her even though her lights and sirens were on. 

She swerved to avoid the car and overturned her cruiser. 

She was transported to the hospital in fair condition.
