Authorities in Tulsa and Wichita get an accused killer off the streets. Cortez Mosley is suspected of shooting a man in Dallas, Texas, then running to Tulsa to get away. Tulsa Police tracked him down in Wichita, Kansas on Wednesday and that is where Mosley was arrested. News On 6 anchor Latoya Silmon reports Cortez Mosley was on the run for more than a week, but Wednesday his time ran out.
Tulsa Police say catching him was made easier because so many different agencies were on the case.
â€œMost definitely Cortez is a threat to our society,â€ said Tulsa Police Corporal Matt Hart.
Hart says each day the suspected killer was on the loose the more dangerous he would become.
â€œIf we can get him in three or four days, really ideally at the time, but within 3 or four days it keeps him from doing something dangerous to someone else because he's desperate,â€ said Matt Hart.
Dallas Police say it happened during a private party in downtown Dallas. The victim was 27-year-old Bobby Washington.
"They didn't have any kind of words with each other. No confrontation. It just a guy randomly walking by saying he hate different dudes or whatever the case maybe and he chose to pick Bobby," said Bobbyâ€™s widow Sharita Washington.
Tulsa Police got word Cortez Mosley, a Tulsa native was headed home. Corporal Hart says the Northern Oklahoma Violent Crimes Taskforce sprung into action teaming up with Dallas Police and several other federal agencies.
â€œOur resources are really people and time because that's just what we do. We devote full time to apprehending fugitives,â€ said Corporal Matt Hart.
Their teamwork paid off. Days later, Wichita Police nabbed Mosley in their community.
â€œWith their little bit of information and our little bit of information we tied it together and tied him to Wichita with either his ex-girlfriend or girlfriend I'm not sure,â€ said Matt Hart.
Mosley is in the Sedgwick County jail in Wichita. There is word on when he will extradited back to Texas.
