Police are looking for a person responsible for shooting a Tulsa man outside a home Sunday morning following an altercation that began at a local nightclub.
Peso Wilber, 30, suffered gunshot wounds to his lower extremities in the 7100 block of East 10th Street just after midnight, Tulsa police Capt. Karen Tipler said.
Shortly before the shooting, police said two people went to the 727 Club at 727 N. Sheridan Road in attempt to find Nina Wilber, the mother of three small children they had been babysitting.
After locating Nina Wilber and talking to her, an altercation ensued, Tipler said.
Nina Wilber then left the club and headed back to her home while being followed by angry club patrons, Tipler said.
Minutes later, someone pulled a gun and shot Peso Wilber, Tipler said. He was transported to a local hospital, where he is expected to survive his injuries, police said.
Police said Nina Wilber left the scene with the shooter in a what appeared to be a white Chevy Suburban or Tahoe.
The three children, ages 5, 4, and 1, were placed in protective custody after it was reported Nina Wilber had not been with them for several days, police said.
Anyone with information about the shooting or the suspects whereabouts is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS (2677).
