Oklahoma City police blocked off N Pennsylvania Ave early Friday after a shootout erupted near Quail Springs Mall late Thursday.  

A shootout involving two vehicles caused police to shut down streets in northwest Oklahoma City late Thursday into early Friday.

About 11 p.m. Thursday, officers responded to reports of gunshots near Quail Springs Mall at 2501 W Memorial Road. Callers told police they saw two vehicles chasing each other, with the occupants shooting at one another, driving east and then south of the area.

Shortly afterward, police found a truck near NW 125 and Pennsylvania Avenue with three people inside it, including a woman with multiple gunshot injuries to her thigh, rib cage and armpit; and another woman with a leg injury.

"The other victim sustained very minor injuries," said Oklahoma City police Sgt. Dillon Quirk. "It was either a graze wound or some fragmented glass that had cut her leg, so that was nowhere near as serious as the victim with gunshot wounds."

Both were treated by emergency medics at the scene, and the woman with multiple injuries was taken to a local hospital for further care. Quirk said her condition is not critical.

The truck's third occupant, 22-year-old Terrance Britton, was arrested and booked into the Oklahoma County jail early Friday on a complaint of assault and battery with a deadly weapon.

The truck carrying Britton and the two women was riddled with more than a dozen bullet holes, mostly on the rear window and along the passenger side but none on the driver's side, police records showed.

The other vehicle allegedly involved in the shootout and its occupants have yet to be found, police said.

"I don't have any knowledge as to what color or what kind, anything like that, of the other vehicle," Quirk said. "Nothing about any of the occupants of the other vehicle showing up at a hospital, either."

An investigation into the shooting remains open. Quirk suggested anyone with information about the shooting contact police at 405-297-1200.

    Another success aphorism comes from Chris Grosser.
    Michael Corleone from The Godfather II disagreed with that.

    Aphorism Examples in Everyday Speech
    Sometimes, though.
    Skilled writers use aphorisms to evoke big ideas in a relatable way.
    As they say, Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
    They’re written in countless books and passed down as folk wisdom.
    If you do, you agree with George Herbert’s famous aphorism from his book, Outlandish Proverbs.
    What does it mean.
    He knows that Luke should either decide that he can do it or decide to quit.
    This aphorism is short and sweet, but it teaches us a valuable truth.
    The origins of this saying are open for debate, but it’s primarily attributed to Abraham Lincoln.
    Let’s talk about that.
    Pick an aphorism that relates to your message and use it to stay focused on your overarching theme.

    Brevity is the key.
    This quote originated from Thomas Howell in New Sonnets and Pretty Pamphlets.
    George Washington is known for his wise sayings.
    This also reminds me of a precept by Sir Edwin Sandys, a politician who helped establish Jamestown, Virginia.
    He once stated, If you want a thing done well, do it yourself.
    Finally, All things come to those who wait is a good aphorism we’re all familiar with.
    It’s time.
    They’re inspirational quotes.
    Now that we’ve covered the aphorism definition, are you ready for more examples.
    You get up and keep trying.
    What am I referring to.
    This also reminds me of a precept by Sir Edwin Sandys, a politician who helped establish Jamestown, Virginia.
    One of his most notable is, An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
    It meant that the person was versatile and adept at many things.
    Not only that, but you can use aphorisms in your writing to summarize your central theme.
    But not today.

    Here’s a classic Japanese saying for you.
    It’s one of the most recognized aphoristic statements today.
    Like George Washington, Sandys believed that telling the truth is always the way to go.
    Want a few more.
    The original saying was, Eat an apple on going to bed, and you’ll keep the doctor from earning his bread.
    Then use it as a guideline to stay focused on your general theme.
    Aphorisms are so common that we hardly think twice about them.
    Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.
    Better safe than sorry is a piece of wisdom from Samuel Lover’s book, Rory O’More.
    He knows that Luke should either decide that he can do it or decide to quit.
    Washington’s message was that it’s wiser to be upfront and deal with the consequences.
    He’s earned that title because he’s authored dozens of aphorisms.
    Not good.
    Pick an aphorism that relates to your message and use it to stay focused on your overarching theme.
    That’s why aphorisms, adages, and proverbs are synonyms for each other.
