OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - An Oklahoma judge has ordered the release of a man arrested in connection with a shooting that left at least eight people wounded following an NBA playoff game.

Online court records show an order was signed Wednesday to release Rodney Hill from custody, pending additional investigation into the shootings Monday night in Oklahoma City's Bricktown entertainment district.

Officers also arrested a 17-year-old boy on Tuesday.

Eight people suffered gunshot wounds after a fight erupted into gunfire following the Thunder-Lakers playoff game. A pregnant woman was injured in the scuffle.

Hill's attorney says investigators determined that Hill wasn't criminally responsible for what happened.

Following the shootings, which police say were unrelated to the game, Thunder officials said the game broadcast would no longer be shown on the video board outside arena.
