Tulsa police responded Thursday morning to a report of a shooting in east Tulsa. 

Police got the call around 5 am.  They say four people were partying at an apartment at the Shadybrook Retirement Community, near 41st and Garnett, when the man who owned the apartment pulled out a gun and shot another man. After that police aren’t sure what lead to the shooter being shot.

One witness told police the shooter shot himself, others say the victim got a hold of the gun and shot back in self defense. Detectives are working to get to the bottom of what really happened.

Police have identified the shooting victims as 52-year old James Littlejohn and 39-year old John Cobb. Detectives say they were all friends and the apartment owner invited the other three over.

Folks, alcohol and firearms make poor companions. If you have guests over, if you want to drink at five in the morning---unload your weapon and store it under lock and key.
