Eight people were shot and injured a few blocks from Chesapeake Energy Arena after the Thunder-Lakers game last night, Oklahoma City police told the AP.

One of the wounded is in critical condition, while the other seven suffered non-life threatening injuries.

According to the OKC police captain, “Some girls got into it with a group of guys, and the guys opened fire on the women.”

A crowd of 5,000-6,000 people was gathered outside the arena to watch the deciding Game 5 on big screens. But just minutes after the Thunder eliminated the Lakers, the celebration turned violent.

No arrests have been made.

After the game, Thunder big man Nazr Mohammed tweeted about it:
