TULSA, OK -- One man has been killed in what Tulsa police believe to be an auto theft.  It happened Sunday night in the 400 block of South 59th West Avenue.

Officers are trying to determine what happened, but say they believe it all started when a man's work truck was stolen from his home. He got into another vehicle and followed his work truck.

That's when police say the man got out of his vehicle and some kind of altercation took place.

Officers believe that the person in the stolen truck ran over the victim, which lead to his death.

Officers have one suspect in custody who they believe was driving the work truck.

Police were looking for a white cabover delivery truck with "Metro Builder's Supply" written on the side. It has since been located.
