(Newser) – Minutes after the Oklahoma City Thunder won last night's NBA playoff game against the Los Angeles Lakers, skirmishes broke out in the city's Bricktown entertainment district and eight people were shot when a gunman fired on the crowd. Two suffered life-threatening injuries, but the other six are expected to survive, KOCO reports. One of the victims, a pregnant woman, was also either kicked or punched after being shot, police say. No one has yet been arrested, and police do not know if the shootings had to do with the game. (Read more Oklahoma City stories.)
