Woman Dead Following Tulsa Shooting Near MLK And Apache
Tulsa Police say a woman has died after a shooting outside a convenience store near Mohawk Boulevard and Martin Luther King Tuesday, July 23.
Homicide detectives said the victim, Soconda Boyd, was shot just after midnight. Police say that multiple shell casings were found, but it is not clear how many times the Boyd was shot.
Police said there were a lot of people in the parking lot where Boyd was shot, but they are having a tough time getting information from them.
Officers showed up at Naife's Food Mart and found Seconda Boyd lying on the ground after she'd been shot in the neck. She was taken to the hospital where she died a few hours later, officers said.
There have been no arrests made in this case, but officials are working on a suspect description. Detectives are talking with witnesses to find out what happened but said most of them told police they didn't see anything.
Officer Jeanne Pierce is asking witnesses to speak up and help provide justice for Boyd's family.
"We know that there are people who there who saw what happened, and if they're scared to talk to us, Crime Stoppers is a great resource for them."
