Tulsa Police said they believe they have recovered a weapon used in the murder of Johnathan Stephens this weekend. Someone walking at the Shoreline Apartments found an AK-47 under a dock near a pond located on the property.

"The gun is believed to be the one used in the Stephens murder due to its proximity of the suspects movements after the murder," Homicide Sergeant Dave Walker said in a news release.
