TULSA, Okla. (AP) – Police say a man has been arrested after shooting a maintenance worker at a south Tulsa apartment complex.

Captain Brad Clark said officers responded to a reported shooting Tuesday morning at the Cascades at Southern Hills apartments and found a man with a gunshot wound to the stomach. He was taken to the hospital.

According to Clark, a tenant entered the leasing office and began arguing with the manager about a written violation notice that he had received. Clark said that the manager asked the man to leave and the maintenance worker stepped in between the manager and the tenant, who fired two shots.

Police said that other maintenance workers grabbed the tenant and held him on the ground until officers arrived and arrested him on two complaints of shooting with intent to kill.
