Pregnant Woman Kicked, Multiple People Shot After Oklahoma City Thunder Eliminate Los Angeles Lakers


The Oklahoma City Thunder eliminated the Los Angeles Lakers and advanced to the Western Conference Finals, after which, downtown Oklahoma City turned into something of a dystopian nightmare.

The Oklahoman is reporting that eight people were shot and one person suffered "blunt trauma," and that person was a pregnant woman.

Oklahoma City police captain Dexter Nelson told The Oklahoman that all reports are preliminary at the moment, but that it appears one person is in critical condition. A fan, Chris Turan, told the newspaper that he heard six to eight shots right after the game ended, and noted a very negative vibe from the crowd.

There have been no arrests thus far.
