Several Hurt in Shooting After Oklahoma City Thunder Game

Source: New York Times

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) At least eight people were injured when an argument escalated to gunfire in Oklahoma City, just blocks from Chesapeake Energy Arena, after the NBA playoff game between the Thunder and the Los Angeles Lakers, city police said Tuesday.

Capt. Dexter Nelson said a scuffle erupted Monday night in a crowd of people walking toward the Bricktown district, a popular nightlife area, and that it quickly turned ugly.

"Some girls got into it with a group of guys, and the guys opened fire on the women," Nelson said.

He said the shooting occurred at 11:35 p.m. Police know of at least eight people wounded in the incident, but Nelson did not have information on their ages or genders. He said one victim was in critical condition but that the others did not have life-threatening injuries.

8. There's a saying

Brave women fear nothing, brave men fear women.

When asked what women felt was the worst that a man could do to her was rape and kill; men noted that they felt the worst was that a woman would laugh at them.

Our powers are enormous, you know.

4. More basketball related violence.

 

And of course, NRA fans will be blamed for the actions of NBA fans.

13. In fact the police are saying

the incident was likely not related to the game and that it's not certain if anyone involved even attended.

5. A LOT of things happend in Oklahoma City after the OKC/LA NBA playoff game

Unless the argument that broke out involved the game, I see no reason for mentioning the OKC team or game.

6. Are you suggesting that the game, which drew tens of thousands of people, had NOTHING to do with it?

"It doesn't appear that what happened had anything to do with the game," he added.

Honey, have a good day at school and remember to keep your bullet proof jacket on, okay?

15. Guns

 

I love how safe America is with all the guns around. That is what I hear from the gun-religionists, anyway.
