Tulsa police later released the following statement:
"Officers responded to a shooting at both Rudisill LIbrary at 1520 N. Hartford and the nearby QuikTrip at Pine and Peoria.
Through the investigation, Homicide Detectives learned the suspect first went to the library. Inside the library, he walked up behind a man sitting at a desk and shot him in the back of his head.
The victim from the library was rushed to the hospital in critical condition. He later died.
Following the shooting at the library, the suspect went to the Quiktrip. Inside the store, the suspect again shot a male in the back of the head. When that victim fell to the ground, the suspect shot him again.
Witnesses said the suspect fired at least one more round inside the store, but no one else was hit.
The victim who was shot inside the QuikTrip died on the scene.
When Officers arrived, the suspect was standing outside the store. He admitted to Officers on the scene that he shot two people.
The suspect was taken to the hospital for treatment. It appears he was injured from a potentially self-inflicted gunshot wound. He will be booked into the Tulsa County Jail following treatment."
