Tulsa Police arrest 19-year-old Marquise Edwards after a more than seven hour standoff near 11th and Lewis.

Police were disbatched to the scene at 2:30pm because of a disturbance call.

Police say Edwards refused to come out and was armed with a shotgun. He also has three felony warrants against him, one for burglary and another for robbery.

Police evacuated nearby homes and fired pepper balls into the home trying to get Edwards out. They called the landline phone several times trying to make contact with Edwards. Neighbors watched in tears praying the standoff didn't escalate into anything else.

"Please, please, please. God don't let nobody get hurt. Please don't let anyone get hurt," said Rose Mazza.

She kept praying Edwards came out safely.

"Lord Jesus, don't let anyone get hurt. Please!" she said.

FOX23 learned just before ten Tuesday night Tulsa Police Special Ops squad went into the home and found Edwards in the attic. He faces additional charges of resisting arrest.

So now north Tulsa has its own culture??? Really??? Never knew that......smh please dont stereo type on your geographical theory.....it makes no difference where you were raised there are bad guys everywhere, and its not necessarily the way you were raised either......every child is born with a mind of their own and parents can mold that mind to the best of their ability but the final outcome of that childs actions will solely be that individuals choice...and actually eleventh and lewis is midtown not north.....

There is a culture in north tulsa that produces these horrible children. This young man has destroyed his own life. He will od prison time and never have a decent job. Why is that learning to read, and to do math, being interested in science, and wanting to learn in general is considered to be 'acting white'. It is a culture that is promoted community leaders. Obama himself promotes the so called 'Critial Race Theory' that says whites will always be racist and it is impossible for a black to be racist no matter how much they hate. It is this that creates all these young thugs with no hope. Of course if democrats would stop blocking bills that would create jobs that would be helpful too.

He must really like prison life. Once they've been institutionalized !!! It's hard to keep them out.
