FOX23 reported Tuesday that a 9-year-old went to the hospital with a gunshot wound to his head. Police believe the child was hit by celebratory gunfire from an area near the Freedom Fest event.
Tulsa police released information about a second victim Wednesday morning. Early Wednesday morning, 35-year-old Branon Vaughan went to the hospital.
He said he felt a sharp pain on his face while leaving Freedomfest, walking near 18th and Boston. He thought someone threw something at him.
Vaughan told FOX23 he even thought someone shot at him with a potato gun because the force was so strong.
He spent Tuesday nursing the wound, but the pain got worse. Doctors performed a CT scan and found bullet fragments in his jaw.
Doctors said the wounds were consistent with a bullet falling from the sky.
The victim was treated and released. He will need a specialist to get the fragments out, which will likely happen Wednesday afternoon.
