Multiple people have been injured in a shooting at an Oklahoma City restaurant, police say.
The shooting, which has killed at least one and injured five, broke out about 6.30pm inside Louie’s Grill and Bar.
Captain Bo Matthews told reporters the shooter, a white male who walked in and began randomly shooting, was the person killed.
He was shot by a citizen also carrying a handgun as he tried to run away from the scene.
