Police say one man is dead, another shot in the head after a shooting near 11th Street and 129th East Avenue late Sunday. 

It is Tulsa's 17th murder of 2018.

They say it all started a little before 11 p.m.  Police say the two victims were in the Briar Patch bar when another man opened the door and looked in. 

The two men in the bar went outside and confronted that man.  Police say a fight broke out and about ten people took on the two victims and that is when police say shots were fired. 

Police Sgt. Dave Walker says one victim, who is 34, was shot in the head, but says the bullet did not penetrate the man's skull.  The man was taken to the hospital, where he was treated and released.  

Sgt. Dave Walker says they also found the second victim, who was 49 years old, dead in the front yard of a home in the 1100 block of South 124th East Avenue.  

"He was with the other guy that got shot in the head, so trying to find out what the beef was between these two guys and the group of individuals that showed up," said Sgt. Dave Walker.

Police are looking at surveillance video from the bar and working at getting surveillance video from the nearby convenience store as well. 

Sgt. Walker says no one has been arrested, but if anyone has information, they should call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS.
