TULSA, Okla. (AP) – Authorities in Tulsa say a shooting that stemmed from the breakup of two teenagers has left two people dead and a third wounded.

Police Sgt. Dave Walker says an 18-year-old man and an 18-year-old woman were killed Sunday night, and a 19-year-old woman was hospitalized.

Walker says the 18-year-old man arrived at his ex-girlfriend’s house and an altercation began with the ex-girlfriend’s father, 45-year-old Antonio Simmons, who told him to leave. Police say Simmons followed the 18-year-old man to a car and then fired a handgun several times, hitting the man and two women inside.

The ex-girlfriend was elsewhere and wasn’t hurt.

Walker says no weapon was found in the car and Simmons was arrested on two first-degree murder complaints.

It wasn’t immediately clear if Simmons has an attorney.
