Homicide investigator Sgt. Dave Walker says last week's murder at a north Tulsa car wash was the third incident.

"We believe the murder on Thursday, the shooting on Sunday and the one this morning are all gang-related and connected.  Nothing concrete but sure looks like the same scenarios.  I do not know enough about the gang sets and groups to answer which side is which, but I do recognize the same names victims and suspects," said Sgt. Dave Walker.

Late Monday, police said neighbors on East Latimer Court told officers they heard 15 to 20 shots and saw a man running down the street.  

When police arrived, officers found a man sitting in an SUV with gunshot wound to his head.  EMSA took him to the hospital. Sgt. Walker says the victim isn't expected to survive. Another man showed up at a Tulsa hospital with wounds to his arm and back. Sgt. Walker says that victim is expected to live.

On July 2, police said Elon Shaw, 28, was killed at the Suds N Go car wash near Martin Luther King Boulevard and Apache.
