A 52-year-old man who was shot in the back early Thursday has refused to provide police with information about the shooting.
Tulsa police were called to the 200 block of East 29th Street North around 2 a.m.
Detectives said the victim drove to the residence and knocked on the door seeking help. A resident of the home found the bleeding man sitting on the porch, Officer Jillian Roberson said.
He suffered two gunshot wounds to the back and was transported to St. John Medical Center, she said.
“The victim refused to disclose where the crime occurred or who had fired the rounds that struck him,” Roberson said.
He is expected to survive his injuries.
