Two arrested in shootings of five at Hmong party

TULSA (AP) — Police have arrested two Hmong suspects in an attack at a Hmong New Year’s festival in which five people were wounded.

Capt. Mike Williams said police don’t know a motive for the shooting Saturday night at the Green Country Event Center.

He said a police helicopter in the area spotted a suspicious vehicle driving away with its headlights off. He says officers arrested the two suspects after pulling them over and recovered a semi-automatic pistol that they believe was used in the attack.

All five victims are Hmong. Williams said two were being treated for torso wounds and the other three were being treated for arm or leg wounds. He said one victim is in critical condition and another may lose a leg.
