Tulsa police are searching for a suspect after a man was shot in the chest at an east Tulsa mobile home park Monday night.

A man was shot Monday night at an east Tulsa mobile home park, and police are looking for the shooter.

Tulsa police responded to a report of a shooting at the Serenity Mobile Home Park in the 100 block of North 126th East Place near Admiral Place and 129th East Avenue.

When officers arrived, they found an injured black man lying in front of a mobile home. He had been shot once in the chest with a small caliber handgun, police said. Sgt. Bruce Alexander said the victim was talking to first responders before being transported to Hillcrest Medical Center. 

The homeowner, reportedly the victim's mother, told police her son invited two men to the mobile home. About 7:30 p.m., the mother reportedly heard an argument before her son was shot. 

A suspect fled on foot from the home and the victim collapsed in front of the trailer. Shortly after the shooting, a clerk at the Flying J Truck Stop at 121 N. 129th East Avenue called TPD to report a suspicious person matching the suspect's description. 

The suspect was gone by the time officers arrived at the truck stop, but did recover the suspect's phone that showed he had contacted several people looking for a ride from the area. An officer also stopped a vehicle at 11th Street and 101st East Avenue whose driver admitted to giving the suspect a ride from the area.

Officers, K9 units and a helicopter searched the area for the suspect, but he was still at large as of 9:30 p.m. Monday.
