Tulsa Police have made two arrests in a murder at a Tulsa apartment complex Tuesday morning and are searching for additional suspects. Homicide Sergeant Dave Walker said police believe the crime was drug related.

Brandy Jordan and Xavier Jordan have been booked on murder complaints, Walker said.

Homicide detectives say several men tried to get into the victim's apartment at 36th Street North and Peoria through two doors, and when that didn't work, they went in through a window. Police say the man's wife got scared and left the apartment with their children and called police.

When officers got there, her husband was dead. Witnesses told police they heard one gunshot.

Police say the man had told people in the apartment complex he was a marijuana dealer.

"It is believed that this caused him to be the target of several threats and other crimes involving the apartment," Walker said.

The victim's name has not yet been released.

Walker said the investigation identified four suspects. Two have been taken into custody after police spotted their van in the 4600 block of North Peoria. They arrested the driver, 24-year-old Brandy Jordan and a passenger, Xavier Jordan, 22.

They are searching for Jerrick "Rico" Washington, 18. He's described as a black male, 5'9" and 180 pounds. All the men live in the same apartment complex.
