Shortly before 6:30 p.m. on Thursday evening, police were called to Louie's On The Lake at Lake Hefner following a reported shooting. When the gunman walked back out into the parking lot, two armed people, Juan Carlos Nazario, 35, and Bryan Wittle, 39, shot him dead.

The suspect, whose identity was not immediately released, was killed.

"It sounded like, you know, any kind of restaurant noise, a rack of plates crashing". That man was also said to be in good condition.

Fortunately, police say all of the victims from the shooting are expected to make a full recovery.

Mr Tilghman shot at people from the front door of the restaurant, but he did not enter the premises.

Matthews says the shooting appeared to be a random act.

The statement referred other questions to police.

The National Rifle Association tweeted about the shooting on Thursday, touting it as an example of the idea that "the best way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun", an idea disputed by experts.

Matthews said police previously arrested Tilghman as a juvenile in 2003 in a domestic assault and battery case, but since then, they have had no interactions with him. Police have said there would have been far more casualties if it weren't for the patron's quick thinking.

Matthews said he believes charges will not be filed against the armed citizens.
