Two men shot outside a bar near N.E. 23rd Street and Bryant in Oklahoma City tried to transport themselves to the hospital, but one of those victims crashed his car just a few blocks from the scene.

Police say the two men were sitting in a car outside a bar called Boots and Saddles around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday when someone opened fire on them. One victim was shot in the neck, the other in the chest.

Instead of calling 911, both men tried to get help on their own. The victim shot in the neck tried driving away, but crashed his car on N.E. 15th Street. He was rushed to the hospital. He's in stable condition, and News 9 has learned he's refused to cooperate with police.

The man who was shot in the chest was driven to the hospital by someone else. He underwent surgery and is currently in critical condition.

Police have not made any arrests or identified possible suspects. Investigators say the shootings may be gang related.
