The Oklahoma City Thunder eliminated the Los Angeles Lakers and advanced to the Western Conference Finals, after which, downtown Oklahoma City turned into something of a dystopian nightmare.
The Oklahoman is reporting that eight people were shot and one person suffered “blunt trauma,” and that person was a pregnant woman.
Oklahoma City police captain Dexter Nelson told The Oklahoman that all reports are preliminary at the moment, but that it appears one person is in critical condition. A fan, Chris Turan, told the newspaper that he heard six to eight shots right after the game ended, and noted a very negative vibe from the crowd.
There have been no arrests thus far.
