TULSA - A standoff at Saint Francis hospital ended peacefully after a man held police at bay for nearly three hours.
The incident began about 6:00 a.m. when Burgin Towe, 62, showed up at the hospital with his 27-year-old son, Neill Towe.
The son had been shot in the upper left leg, and was admitted to the emergency room.
He told hospital workers his father had shot him; security guards went to find the father, who had gone back outside to his red Ford pickup, parked near the helipad on the SE part of the St. Francis campus.
The guards saw him pointing a handgun at his chest, and police were called.
No one was injured, but the hospital was on partial lockdown and hospital operations were disrupted because the emergency entrance could not be used.
At about 9:00 a.m., the man finally surrendered after negotiations conducted by TPD via the suspect's cell phone.
Neill Towe's injuries are not life threatening.
No one else was hurt.
The shooting occurred in Jenks, earlier Friday morning.
Commander Paul Rinkel with Jenks Police tells KRMG the two men were driving on Main Street in the pickup when the shot was fired.
He said they're still investigating to determine if the shooting was deliberate or not, and what charges, if any, will be filed.
