Eight wounded in a shooting as fans spill out into the streets surrounding the Oklahoma City Thunder’s arena

Sad news out of Oklahoma City, where a shooting in the city's Bricktown district marred the aftermath of the Oklahoma City Thunder's 4-1 series victory over the Los Angeles Lakers. Early reports have one victim in critical condition, thankfully no fatalities, but eight shooting victims in total. The incident took place less than a half-hour following the Thunder's win, just blocks away from the team's Chesapeake Energy Arena. Here's the Associated Press' report:

Capt. Dexter Nelson said some scuffles broke out in a crowd of people walking east toward the Bricktown district, a popular nightlife area. "Some girls got into it with a group of guys, and the guys opened fire on the women," Nelson said. He said the shooting occurred at 11:35 p.m. Police know of at least eight people wounded in the incident, but Nelson did not have information on their ages or genders.

The very good Thunder blog Daily Thunder glommed on to a cell phone video of an arrest following the incident, though at this early stage we have no idea whether or not the man in police custody is the alleged shooter. Here's the SFW clip:

OKC's News on 6 also reported that two people were arrested following the shootings, and we'll update this post as we learn more throughout Tuesday.
