At least one person was injured in a shooting at the Southpoint apartments at York and Georgia streets, according to witnesses.

Though Muskogee police can only confirm that there was a shooting, possibly more than one, witnesses say at least three shots were fired and one person was injured.

Two ambulances were dispatched to the scene, but Muskogee County EMS has not responded to requests for information, so there is no official word on whether anyone was injured.

We will update as soon as official information becomes available.

UPDATE: 11:57 p.m.: Police and EMS have confirmed that one person is dead.

Four people were shot. One was dead when emergency officials arrived. The other three were taken to a Tulsa hospital, one by helicopter, the other two by Muskogee County EMS.

Police have no names, and no motive for the shootings at this time. If they have a suspect, they have not released that information. Police have also not released ages or race information on the victims, citing an ongoing investigation as the reason.
