Police responded to a shooting call around 8:00 p.m. Saturday at the Green Country Event Center, located at 31st Street and 116th East Avenue.

The Xiong Reunion had around 400 people gathered at the event center when witnesses say a man dressed in black came into the room and fired shots, wounding five people.

Police say the men fled the scene in a vehicle but drove with the headlights off. A police helicopter noticed suspcious activity around the area and followed the vehicle. Officers then pulled over the suspicious vehicle and detained two suspects named Lee Meng and Boonmlee Lee. Police also recovered a semi-automatic handgun they believe was used in the attack.

The two suspects were questioned by police and booked into Tulsa County Jail. Lee and Meng are both being charged with five counts of shooting with intent to kill and a felony charge of possessing a firearm.

Police tell FOX23 two victims are being treated for torso wounds and the other three are being treated for arm or leg wounds. One victim is in critical condition and another may loose a leg. The victims injured range from their late teens to their early 50s.

Tulsa police don't know a motive for Saturday nights shooting.

Apparently one of the police helicopters was watching this unfold on their FLIR infrared camera. They likely recorded it, and that should be legally public record.
