TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Tulsa police say a sheriff's deputy and two other people have been wounded in shootings outside a courthouse plaza.

Police spokesman Leland Ashley says a report of a person firing into the air was reported about 2:40 p.m. Wednesday between the courthouse and the Tulsa City/County Library in downtown. Ashley says two deputies exchanged gunfire with the shooter.

The deputy, a bystander and the suspect were shot during the gun battle. Ashley says the deputy and bystander's wounds appeared minor. The severity of the suspect's wounds weren't immediately known.
