Tulsa police are investigating a shooting at a retirement community early Thursday.
Emergency responders were dispatched to the Shadybrook Retirement Community, 4203 S. 109th East Ave., around 5 a.m.
Police said 39-year-old John Cobb, a resident of the complex, shot James Littlejohn, 52, in the abdomen after they had been “partying all night long.”
Officers initially thought Littlejohn may have shot Cobb but later said Cobb apparently shot himself on accident.
The men were apparently involved in a domestic dispute inside one of the building’s units, Moudy said.
Two witnesses, one of whom called 911, fled the scene when the assailant opened fire, Moudy said.
Upon arriving at the complex, officers forced their way into an apartment after hearing calls for help.
Littlejohn was transported in serious condition to Saint Francis Hospital. Cobb was admitted in fair condition.
Representatives of Shadybrook’s management company classified the site as an independent living facility for seniors and people with disabilities.
