The battle that broke out just after when hundreds of armed men started into “Little Africa” has resulted in scores of casualties among the whites in addition to probably scores killed according to reports from hospitals.
A report from the Tulsa Hospital at 7:15 said that within the last 20 to 25 minutes badly wounded white men had been brought in by ambulance and that more were arriving. One of the wounded men died on the way to the hospital, attendants said. He was not identified at the time and attendants had no time to get names of wounded.
At the Oklahoma hospital about eight or ten new victims had been received since the morning battle opened, one dying in an ambulance just before reaching the hospital.
These men were all believed to have been shot by snipers firing from houses in the “black belt” during the invasion of the negro district.
