Police say someone hid across the street and fired shots into the house in the 4300 block of North Elgin. Police say it was the act of cowards, with no regard to who might be hurt and that Kordero Coleman was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.

"The young man lives in the neighborhood, was visiting a friend, just got there a few minutes before this happened. He had no idea what was going on, doing nothing wrong," said Tulsa Police Sgt Mike Huff.

Detectives are looking for a dark colored Chevy Tahoe with two men inside that would've been in the 4300 block of North Elgin around 9 p.m. Sunday.

If you have any information about this crime call Crime Stoppers at 596-COPS. Remember, you can remain anonymous.
