Oklahoma City police were working late Thursday to piece together what happened when a man went into a popular Lake Hefner restaurant and shot two people.

The suspect has not been identified.

The mother and daughter were celebrating a birthday when they were injured, CNN affiliate KOCO reported.

When the suspect walked outside, "a bystander with a pistol" confronted him and fatally shot him, police tweeted. His body was discovered about 50 to 75 feet from the front door, nearly in the parking lot. "We don't know what he was going to do, so they put an end to a situation that was risky".

The Hal Smith Restaurant Group owns the restaurant. "We have no reason to believe this is a terrorist type of incident", Matthews said.

"This is a blessing that it was stopped at this point, who knew when this guy was going to stop shooting people", Cpt.

The NRA also took a swipe at Gov. Mary Fallin, who two weeks ago vetoed a bill that would have made Oklahoma the 13th state to let residents carry guns without a permit.
