Tulsa homicide detectives are working to find out what led up to a homicide in an apartment complex plagued by violence.

"I figured someone came outside and was shooting in the air but I didn't know anyone got shot. I didn't hear an ambulance or fire truck," said Corey Barzon.

The investigation started when police say a person in a large tan Lincoln or Grand Marquis dropped off a man who had been shot at St. Francis Medical Center in South Tulsa.

Police say witnesses led them to an apartment near 61st and South Peoria Avenue.

Homicide detectives say they have questioned the two people who lived in the apartment and they will not be arrested for the crimes.

Around 1 p.m., neighbors living in River Glenn Apartments say they heard gunshots, "I just happened to hear pow, pow, pow," said Donna Thomas.

She lives in the same complex and can see the apartment from her home.

"I heard the gun shots and looked out my window and that's when I saw them running into the house," said Thomas.

Another neighbor also heard gunshots but said he was too afraid to get in the middle of it.

"It's not something you open the door and peak and see anyone," said Barzon.

He didn't hear any commotion and so he didn't call for help.

"If someone got shot it would be someone screaming and hollering, it wasn't like that," said Barzon.

Inside the apartment, crime scene detectives loaded brown paper bags with evidence. They tell FOX23 News evidence shows there was a struggle but the victim was not shot in the apartment.

Thomas says she saw the couple who lived in the apartment and the boyfriend, Arizona Glenn, was injured.

"She just said that she had to get him to the hospital," said Thomas. "He was bloody in the face."

Eleven days ago, another man was murdered in the breezeway at the apartment but homicide detectives do not believe the murders are connected. However, the violence is unnerving for families.

"It is kind of scary when you have kids," said Thomas.

The complex has security, and on most days, families feel safe, but not on Wednesday.

"I think I'm about ready to move out of here because it's just getting more dangerous," said Thomas.

Since police do not believe the man was shot in the apartment and neighbors heard gunshots, they are continuing to question people on what happened inside that apartment.

Police are looking for the driver who dropped off the victim and other people connected to the driver.

Officers are looking for a large four-door tan Lincoln or Grand Marquis.
