Heavily Armed Man Arrested In Tulsa Standoff
TULSA, Oklahoma - A police standoff near Pine and Sheridan ended peacefully early Monday after officers said a man fired multiple gunshots inside a home.
Tulsa Police say it began at 1:30 a.m. when they got a 911 call from a screaming woman in the 1400 block of North Kingston Place. When officers arrived, the woman told police a 55-year-old man had fired gun inside a home.
Police surrounded the home.
The woman, along with her boyfriend and her two children, ages 6 months old and 3 years old had escaped by climbing out a bedroom window.
She told police, Herman Webster's elderly mother was still inside.
Tulsa police say Webster came home drunk and was angry with his daughter, calling her "lazy." He started throwing things around then pointed a gun at his daughter, threatening her life.
The two struggled over the gun. Eventually the woman fled to the bedroom with her children and grandmother, locking the door. Police say Webster fired seven rounds through the door.
"It was obviously very rapid and dynamic, and the information came very quickly and officers were having to react very quickly to that situation," said Tulsa Police Sgt. Laurel Ledbetter.
Two hours after it began, officers talked Webster into surrendering.
Inside the home, a search by Tulsa Police turned up 18 weapons including handguns, shotguns and an assault rifle.
The grandmother's foot was broken during the fight, and she was taken to a local hospital.
Herman Webster was arrested and taken in for questioning. He was booked into the Tulsa County jail on complaints of domestic assault and battery, assault with a dangerous weapon and 4 complaints of shooting with intent to kill.
The jail shows Webster's bond at $300,000 with a April 23rd court appearance.
