TULSA, OK -- A deadly shooting last month has Tulsa homicide detectives stumped. But they are hoping you can help them.

Tulsa Police believe an accent may be the key to catching these killers.

Carlos Humberto-Gutierrez was at a restaurant on October 24th around 9 p.m. at 3120 South 108th East Avenue when two men approached him and asked for a ride. He agreed and hopped into the driver's seat.

"The individuals get in the vehicle and they hear shots and see the victim exit the driver's side and runs into the restaurant and collapses," said TPD officer Leland Ashley.

Police say the Gutirerez had been at the restaurant earlier, eating alone, so they don't know if he knew the two killers or if they were strangers. The men took off and no one saw a getaway car, but something unique about them was they spoke Spanish with a Central American accent.

"We're hoping someone knows two Hispanic males who hang out in that area who speak with a Central American accent and will come forward with that information," Officer Leland Ashley said.

That information could mean the difference between closing this case or it turning cold.

Anyone with information can call Crimestoppers at 596-COPS or text 918 tip and the information to Crime Stoppers.

Everything is anonymous and you could earn a cash reward.
