A man was critically wounded by gunfire Saturday evening in northwest Oklahoma City, police said.

About 7 p.m., the man was standing in the parking lot of Beauty World Beauty Supply, 5029 NW 10, when another man walked up from a nearby apartment complex, began arguing with the victim and then shot him multiple times, Lt. Jeff Cooper said.

A third man inside the store heard the gunshots, came outside and fired his gun at the shooter, Cooper said.

The victim was taken to a hospital in critical condition.

The shooter — identified only as a black man — fled on foot back to the apartment complex, he said.

It is not known whether the shooter was hit by gunfire.

Witnesses were being interviewed by police Saturday night.
