Oklahoma City police say they have arrested two suspects in connection with Monday night’s shooting in Bricktown after the Thunder game.

Rodney Hill, 19, and 16-year-old Avery Myers are both in custody and face felony counts of shooting with intent to kill. Both were arrested Tuesday afternoon.

Hill is being held at the Oklahoma County Jail without bond. Meyers is being held on a $160,000 bond.

Chief Bill Citty said talks with witnesses led to the arrests.

Shots rang out in as large crowds were leaving the playoff game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the OKC Thunder, police said.

According to the affidavit, Hill, two other men and a woman were involved in an altercation with several of the shooting victims before one of the men pulled a gun and starting shooting into the crowd. 

Police are looking for other suspects.

The shooting victims were identified as:
Norman Richards, III, 22 years old – Shot
Female Juvenile, 14 years old – Shot
Leibra Gaines, 22 years old – Shot
Twaina Jones, 22 years old – Shot
Female Juvenile 13 years old – Shot
Female Juvenile, 14 years old – Shot
Female Juvenile, 15 years old – Shot
Male Juvenile, 17 years old – Shot
Destiny Holmes, pregnant, – Blunt Force Trauma

One shooting victim is in critical condition, the others have non-life-threatening injuries.

The Oklahoma City Thunder released a statement Tuesday saying they are working closely with police.

“We are saddened to hear of the violence following the game last night,” the statement said. “It put a damper on what was otherwise an exciting night for Oklahoma City and the Thunder.”

“We will continue to work closely with law enforcement and the city to review security and crowd control procedures and we stand ready to make any necessary changes to ensure safety.”

Thousands of people were in the area when the Thunder beat the Lakers, 106-90, to advance to the Western Conference finals.
