Armed Citizen Kills Shooter at Oklahoma City Restaurant

A 39-year-old woman and two juvenile girls were shot and wounded, and an unnamed man fell and broke his arm while fleeing, according to a statement from police.

The civilian has not been identified, "but all I know is it was just a Good Samaritan, and it looked like he took the right measures to put an end to the awful incident", Mathews said.

Police also say the gunman was wearing earplugs and glasses, however, it is unknown whether the glasses were for prescription purposes or protection.

Nazario and Whittle did not know one another and had arrived at the restaurant separately, he said.

Mathews said around 100 people were in the restaurant at the time and that all victims will be OK.

Tilghman fired "from the outside of the door into the restaurant", Matthews said, adding "to me, it looks like a random event".

The suspected shooter was identified as Alexander Tilghman, 28.

On a different YouTube page, a user claiming to be Mr Tilghman's brother said he was mentally disturbed, reports Fox 25.

The National Rifle Association tweeted about the shooting on Thursday, touting it as an example of the idea that "the best way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun", an idea disputed by experts.

Police and emergency personnel surround the scene of the shooting at Lake Hefner in Oklahoma City. Mathews said officers have no idea whether the gunman had a larger plan. Captain Mathews said that "it doesn't look like he knew anybody in the restaurant". They were both transported to OU Medical Center. Oklahoma's News 4 reported that the victims were a mother and her 12-year-old daughter who went to Louie's to celebrate the girl's sister's birthday.

Ron Benton, one witness, told News 4 the shots sounded like "a rack of plates crashing" followed by "a pop, pop, pop sound".

Benton then pointed out the shooter among some trees, who was "oddly pacing. and just looking around".
