TULSA, Oklahoma -

Police have released the name of the man shot and killed by a Tulsa resident Sunday morning. Carl Arledge died at a Tulsa hospital after police say he forced his way into a home in the 300 block of East 27th Court North. 

Homicide Sergeant Dave Walker said Arledge's ex-girlfriend lived at the home. 

Police said Arledge first knocked on the front door of the house then got into an argument with the man who lives there. The resident shut the door, and Arledge reportedly kicked it in. That's when the resident fired several shots at the 44-year-old Tulsa man.

Arledge managed to get back into his SUV and drive a short distance before crashing into a parked car. He had a child in the vehicle, in a car seat. She was taken to the hospital to be checked out but wasn't hurt, according to police.

The homeowner who shot Arledge was questioned and released pending further investigation by police and a review of that investigation by the District Attorney's Office, Walker said.

A search of Oklahoma court records shows Arledge pleaded guilty to violating a protective order in 1995 and served a few years in prison for drug-related charges.
