TULSA, Oklahoma -

Tulsa Police are asking the public to help them find the suspect in a fatal shooting Wednesday afternoon in Tulsa. One man was killed and another wounded at the Savanna Landing apartments.

Sergeant Dave Walker said a 41-year-old man died of multiple gunshot wounds after an argument that began Tuesday night and escalated into violence around 4:20 p.m. October 19, 2016. 

That's where Walker said one person confronted another with a gun, fired several rounds and while the intended target got away - two others with them were shot.

One person was killed and another went to the hospital. The wounded man is expected to survive and was able to talk to police at the hospital. Walker described both victims as acquaintances of the targeted person.
