OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Police have arrested a 19-year-old man in connection with a shooting that wounded eight people shortly after the Thunder-Lakers NBA playoff game in Oklahoma City.
Police say Rodney Hill was taken into custody Tuesday afternoon, but no other details have been released.
Capt. Dexter Nelson says the shooting didn’t appear connected to the playoff game, which Oklahoma City won to advance to the NBA Western Conference finals.
Police say a late-night fight escalated into gunfire, leaving eight people injured — including one critically — shortly after the game ended just a few blocks away.
