911 Calls Of Fatal Tulsa Fireworks Stand Shooting Released

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

The 911 calls made moments after a firework stand robbery that ended with a teenager shot dead have been released.

The calls came from three locations within a mile of the fireworks stand.

Dispatchers: “Tulsa County 911.”
Caller 1: “We just got robbed at our fireworks station.”
Caller 2: “And he's yelling call 911.”
Caller 1: “I don't know if he's been shot.”

The first came from the wife of Johnny Mize Junior, who fought the robbers over the fireworks.

“Shots fired and my husband jumped into the back of the truck and they took off with him,” she said. “They were shooting, they shot out their…passenger side window.”

The getaway truck was next spotted up the road with a man running away.

Caller 2: “There's a man running through our property, he's up in our woods and he's yelling, ‘Somebody call 911, go to the hospital,’ and he's up in our woods now.”

That man was Jack Ulrich - who later turned himself in and who denies he had a gun during the robbery.
