Two men were shot Thursday afternoon at a northwest Oklahoma City apartment complex, briefly prompting a scare at a nearby elementary school, authorities said.

Police were called about 2:30 p.m. to the Heritage Apartments, 7550 NW 10, where they found two people with gunshot wounds.

The two men were taken to a hospital with injuries that were not considered life threatening, police Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow said.

A maintenance worker at the complex, who did not give his name, said he heard nine to 12 gunshots. A short time later, police were running through the complex, he said.

Wardlow said numerous people were outside at the time of the shooting and gave conflicting reports and descriptions of the shooter or shooters. At least one witness said a gunman ran toward a nearby elementary school, but Wardlow said police could not confirm that report. Greenvale Elementary School, 901 N Greenvale Road, in Western Heights, was locked down briefly.

Wardlow said police think more than one person was involved in the shooting, but they don't know what prompted the incident.
