Police have arrested two Hmong suspects in an attack at a Hmong New Year's festival in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in which five people were wounded.
Capt. Mike Williams says police don't know a motive for Saturday night's shooting at the Green Country Event Center.
He says a police helicopter that was in the area spotted a suspicious vehicle driving away with its headlights off. He says officers arrested the two suspects after pulling them over and recovered a semi-automatic handgun they believe was used in the attack.
All five victims are Hmong. Williams says two are being treated for torso wounds and the other three are being treated for arm or leg wounds. He says one victim is in critical condition and another may lose a leg.
