TULSA, okla. – A Tulsa man is recovering from being shot in the chest early Saturday, police said.
Police responded to a shooting call near the 2000 block on N. Kingston Ave. at around 5:30 am. and found the man with his right breast, the police said in a press release.
The victim was vigilant and did not complain of excessive pain and was able to walk unaided, police said.
The man told police that he was outside to take care of the trash cans on the curb. While he was taking care of the cans, he saw a dark limo drive by and felt something hit his right chest, police said.
The man said he didn’t hear a shot and neither did the neighbors.
Police said they did not find any cartridge cases on the street or in the surrounding courtyards.
The man was taken to the hospital, where an x-ray showed that there was an object in the victim’s chest that was a small-caliber bullet that did not require immediate surgery, police said.
