TULSA, OK -- A 44-year-old Tulsa man was arrested on five counts of felony shooting with intent to kill after what police call a "drunken disturbance" at about 11 p.m. Saturday.

Tulsa Police say Jay Floyd Jones got into an argument with two men who were walking him home in the 10800 block of East 14th Street. Jones went into his house and came out with a pistol, then started chasing the men down the street, firing as he ran.

The men ran into a nearby house where one of them lives and where a woman and two girls were already present. Jones reportedly shot into that house, and a round hit another home in the neighborhood.

"A few rounds were fired through the east facing sliding glass doors, busting the glass, continuing on through the dining area and kitchen area," the report states.

Two girls, at least one of them a 7-year-old, were in another room that was struck by a round.

Police say Jones then ran back to his own house where he was arrested. He was booked into David L. Moss Jail at 2 a.m. and is being held on $375,000 bond ($75,000 for each felony count).

The arrest report also notes that Jones' does not work because he is disabled.
