in the 233rd mass shooting of 2022

Tulsa police confirmed that a shooter killed four people at Saint Francis Hospital in Tulsa, Okla., on Wednesday.

"Four innocents and one shooter" are dead, Jonathan Brooks of the Tulsa police department said at a news conference on Wednesday. 

Police have not yet identified the shooter and said that he died following a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The shooter had a rifle and a handgun on him, Brooks said. 

Tulsa police said in a Facebook post just before 6 p.m. that the shooter was dead. 

St. Francis Health System locked down its campus Wednesday afternoon because of the situation at the Natalie Medical Building.

Aerial footage from a TV helicopter appeared to show first responders wheeling someone on a stretcher away from the hospital building.
