Renda/Tulsa Gunman In Serious Condition
January 14, 2010 at 6:18 AM (PT)
As first reported by ALL ACCESS YESTERDAY (NET NEWS 1/13), the man who entered RENDA/TULSA's office armed with a gun -- 58-year-old BARRY STYLES -- is in serious condition after being shot in the hip, reports TULSA's CHANNEL 6. Witnesses say he was pointing a loaded revolver at KBEZ employees in the K-HITS studio; there is blood where the suspect was shot just outside the door. In fact, you can still see the bullet hole in the wall.
KHTT jock JOSH SHINAULT, better known as DJ OREO, was behind the mic YESTERDAY afternoon, when he saw an armed gunman pacing the hallway. "I first see him out in the hall, sweating, with a gun, pointing it at people."
"He was demanding to hear from CARLY RUSH. He wanted her to talk, to talk to her immediately," said Promotionms Dir. SCOTT MEDEIROS.
So, DJ OREO and his GM calmly tried to talk STYLES into not killing anyone while waiting for police to show up. "If JOHN was talking to him and made a step forward, he'd point the gun straight at JOHN. And if I took a step forward, he pointed it straight at me. So he really had a good aim on somebody," SHINAULT said.
TV 6 reports STYLES is in serious condition.
