New information concerning a homicide that happened this weekend at a Tulsa auto body shop.

Tulsa Police say Matt Atkinson was inside the shop on South 94th East Avenue playing videogames when he heard a shooting outside. He went outside to find his girlfriend, Misty Gregory shot in the stomach. That's when Atkinson was also shot and killed. They say the suspect, John Seymour, then shot the woman twice more, before getting in his car and racing from the scene, slamming into another vehicle on his way.

Tulsa Police later got into a standoff with Seymour, who shot and killed himself.
