Arrests Made in OKC Shooting That Hurt Eight (May 23, 2012)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Police have arrested two teenagers in connection with a shooting that wounded eight people shortly after the Thunder-Lakers NBA playoff game in Oklahoma City.

Police say Rodney Hill, 19, was taken into custody Tuesday afternoon, and jailed on eight complaints of shooting with intent to kill, records show.

Authorities also arrested a 17-year-old black male on eight complaints of shooting with intent to kill, records show.

Capt. Dexter Nelson says the shooting didn't appear connected to the playoff game, which Oklahoma City won to advance to the NBA Western Conference finals.

Police say a late-night fight escalated into gunfire, leaving eight people injured - including one critically - shortly after the game ended just a few blocks away.

A pregnant woman also was hurt in the fight.
