    Emergency personnel work at the scene of a shooting at a medical center in Tulsa on Wednesday, June 1.

    A gunman killed at least three people at a medical building in Tulsa, police said Wednesday afternoon. The shooter was also dead.

    Tulsa police went to Saint Francis Hospital early Wednesday afternoon after a call about a man armed with a rifle. Capt. Richard Meulenberg said law enforcement is sweeping the building floor by floor for other threats or victims, calling the scene “catastrophic.”

    Meulenberg said investigators are determining whether the gunman was shot by police or he shot himself.

    People seeking information about their loved ones in the building were told to gather at a nearby high school, authorities say.

    The medical building houses the hospital’s outpatient surgery center and breast health center.

    The White House is closely monitoring the situation and is reaching out to local officials to offer support, a White House official said.

    The office of Gov. Kevin Stitt (R) did not immediately respond to requests for comment Wednesday afternoon.
