TULSA, Okla. (AP) - A woman was shot and killed Sunday inside a Tulsa pizza restaurant where she worked, and police were searching for a man in connection to the incident.

The victim’s name and age were not immediately released. Tulsa officer Leland Ashley said police were seeking a 24-year-old man. Officers were searching a wooded area on the city’s east side.

A tan sport utility vehicle the man was believed to have been driving was found at a church about 10 miles from the restaurant.

“We don’t have a motive at this point,” said Ashley, who declined to describe the shooting as workplace-related.

Ashley said the woman was shot in front of at least two other employees shortly before 2 p.m. He said it was not immediately clear whether any customers were inside the restaurant at the time of the shooting.

No other injuries were reported.

No one answered the phone at the restaurant, and a call to a spokesman for the business was not immediately returned.
