The Bricktown Association, Downtown OKC, Inc. and Urban Neighbors will hold the blood drive from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, at the Quail Springs Mall at the lower level near Sears. Donors can make the donation in Norman Richards' name. The 22-year-old was injured in the shooting and still remains in critical condition at the hospital.

"This is a senseless tragedy, and we want to show our support of Norman and his family during this difficult time," said Jeannette Smith, executive director of the Bricktown Association.

Eight people suffered gunshot wounds Monday night. Avery Meyers, a 16-year-old suspect in the shooting, has confessed to opening fire on a crowd of Thunder fans Monday night right after the Thunder's playoff game against the LA Lakers.

Meanwhile, an Oklahoma County District Court Judge has signed an order of release for 19-year-old Rodney Hill, the first suspect arrested in the shooting.
