TULSA, Oklahoma -

Police arrested a man suspected of firing shots at a QuikTrip store at Admiral and Memorial Monday afternoon.

Officers identified him as 27-year-old Michael Bakri.

An officer who was at another QuikTrip at 21st and Memorial later in the evening spotted a man matching the suspect's description as seen on store surveillance video and arrested Bakri.  Police say Bakri was wearing the same clothing from the earlier incident.

Witnesses told police Michael Bakri was arguing with another man in the Admiral and Memorial store, walked out and started shooting.  The shots shattered a store window and door.  No injuries were reported.

Police believe Bakri may also be responsible for shooting at someone else near a car dealership Sunday evening on 46th Street.

Police say the gun has not been recovered.

Michael Bakri was booked into the Tulsa County jail on complaints of shooting into an occupied dwelling, pointing a deadly weapon and public intoxication.

Jail records show he has a court appearance set for August 2, 2016 and is being held on a $70,000 bond.
