TPD Makes Arrest In Rolling Gun Battle

TULSA, Oklahoma -

In less than 24 hours, police made their first arrest in a rolling gun battle that played out on a busy Tulsa street.

Police booked Aundre Rogers into jail Tuesday.

Leaving his first interview with detectives, Aundre Rogers said he is innocent.

Sawyer: "Have you thought about what would happen if somebody had gotten hurt?"
Rogers: "I did get hurt. I'm the victim."

But police aren't so sure.

Officers arrested Rogers as he left the hospital Tuesday morning - his arm in a cast after being shot during a rolling gun battle near Jasper and MLK Tuesday afternoon.

"How our person in the hospital ended up getting shot in the arm...What we think is he is hanging out the window shooting at the car behind him," Sergeant Dave Walker said. "It's a shame he got a booboo on his arm, but he shouldn't be hanging out the window shooting at people."

The incident happened in the middle of a busy intersection Monday.

Police said a stray bullet hit the car of an innocent woman as she was driving home from work.

Officers collected more than a dozen shell casings scattered a half mile down the street.

"These bullets go somewhere, and they are not the best shot and they don't practice, and so the chances of somebody else getting hit that is innocent is great," Walker said.

Right after the shooting is when police say Rogers showed up at the hospital.

Officers said they recovered a gun from a car in the hospital parking lot.

"The officer that took the report was very conscientious, did a great job. Anybody in law enforcement can work these cases. You don't have to be specially trained,” Walker said. “If he wants to get shot and not tell us who did it, then that's fine...but you're putting a lot of innocent people at risk and that is what they don't understand."

Officers said they aren't sure if this shooting is related to another rolling gun battle that happened just three miles away. Officers collected more than 19 shell casings from that scene in the first 10 minutes.
