One Dead, Another Critical After Tulsa Shooting, Crash
TULSA, Oklahoma - Police are looking for a shooter who killed one man, wounded another and caused a crash at a Tulsa apartment complex early Tuesday. They arrested Cedric Warrior for murder and shooting with intent to kill Thursday afternoon.
Officers were called to the Westminster Apartments at 51st and Memorial at about 2 a.m. after the residents of an apartment said an SUV had crash through their bedroom wall.
Police and firefighters arrived to find the passenger of the Chevy Tahoe dead and the driver still alive from multiple gunshot wounds. EMSA took the driver to the hospital.
Police Captain Dave Roberts said it appears the SUV's driver stepped on the gas after he was shot. The impact knocked a mother and her eight-year-old son inside the apartment out of their bed. Police said they were not injured. They say three other children, ages nine, 10 and 11 were also in the apartment, but not in the bedroom that the SUV hit.
In talking with witnesses, police said a vehicle was seen leaving the complex at a high rate of speed just after the crash.
Homicide detectives are now investigating the shootings which may been the result of a possible drug deal.
Names of the passenger or driver in the SUV have not yet been released.
