(TULSA, Okla.) On Wednesday around 4:30 a.m., officers were radio assigned to Hillcrest Medical Center, in reference to a medical notification.  Dispatch advised responding officers that a juvenile male was shot in the right buttock in the area of 107 N. Louisville Ave.  Upon arrival officers contacted the victim.  Also present at the hospital were the victim’s mother and brother.  The victim’s brother stated they were walking in the area of 100 N. Louisville Ave. in an attempt to receive Wi-Fi when they heard a “boom.”  Afterwards, they stated they ran to their friend’s residence where they noticed the victim was bleeding. It was later learned the victim and his brother were walking near N. Marion Ave. and E. Independence St. while the brother was carrying a sawed-off shotgun partially protruding from his backpack.  The gun fell out of the backpack and onto the ground.  The shotgun fired causing injury to the victim’s right buttock.  The victim was ultimately transported to a local hospital where he received medical attention. Officers attempted to recover the weapon but were not successful.
