Neighbor Eric Mapp lives across the street and says he's never seen something like this happen before. 
 
"I have lived here for four years, 90 percent of the people are good people," said Mapp. "I've had no issues, so no, it's not normal around here?,"
 
Officers and Tulsa County sheriff's deputies were on scene investigating through the afternoon. Officers tell us they haven't made any arrests. ? "We know there was a lot of witness, we are trying to find those people now, and transport them down and talk to them, so its really too early to say how it happened and why,"? said Sargent Brandon Walkins.
