Police arrested a 43-year-old Tulsa man on a second-degree murder complaint following a Monday fatal shooting.

In their arrest report, police say when the chase ended, David Scott fired his gun at the victim - Temp Burdick's - vehicle.  Police say Burdick, 33, was shot in the head and later died at the hospital.

Police say David Scott admitted shooting the victim after Scott said the victim cut him off in traffic and broke out Scott’s window.

According to the arrest and booking report, police say Scott told them he fired one shot at the victim and took off.

They say Scott told police he didn’t know he hit the victim but did go home, fix his window and hide the gun. Officers say they recovered the gun.

Investigators also say neighbors told them, David Scott was arguing with the victim, Temp Burdick over the victim being abusive to women.  They say that argument led to a car chase that covered five blocks prior to the shooting near Virgin and Lewis.

After he was questioned, David Scott was booked into the Tulsa County jail.
