A witness was killed as she watched a man be gunned down.
Tulsa police say that man may have had a lot of enemies.
Homicide detectives believe the shooter targeted Deyonta Dunn, 20, in his home near East Pine and North Sheridan.
The witness, Phoenicia Dorsey, 19, was also shot and killed.
Homicide detectives believe the couple was shot in early hours or late night on Thursday.
Police were called to the home in the 6900 block of East Newton Thursday night around 11:45 p.m.
"We are not asking for people on the street to risk their lives, we are asking for a phone call,” said TPD Homicide Sergeant Dave Walker.
The notes of a wind chime are the same but the neighborhood is changed.
"I don't know why but this world is getting crazy,” said neighbor Adam Underwood.
Five years ago, a mother died after being bludgeoned with a hammer and set on fire. Her infant was left to burn in the home. Her ex-boyfriend, Raymond E. Johnson, doused her with gasoline and was convicted of double murder and sentenced to death.
"During the night I just don't get out,” said Underwood.
Now there is another double murder.
"It looked like they [police] swarmed this place,” said neighbor Rodney Williams.
The victims’ family also swarmed the crime scene.
"They said, ‘they shot my baby, they shot my baby.’ Then everything broke loose, people were everywhere,” said Williams.
Investigators said a family member found Dunn and Dorsey shot to death in the home.
"Had she not been with Mr. Dunn she would still be alive,” said Walker. "I think Mr. Dunn is the one who brought the problems to the house."
Police said Dunn ran in gangs, drugs and robberies.
"Or pulling guns on folks," said Walker.
Records show since May, 2011, Dunn had been arrested five times including gun charges.
Walker said Dunn was a witness in the unsolved murder of Martin Caleb on January 31st, 2011.
"We don't think at this point his murder has anything to do with that murder but we think this murder has everything to do with Mr. Dunn and his activities," said Walker.
Police believe Dunn had created several enemies.
“The suspect pool for Mr. Dunn is large,” said Walker. “This doesn’t help us any by the stretch of the imagination."
Detectives said the last time Dorsey and Dunn were seen was on Halloween night.
They believe they could have been dead for 10 to 12 hours.
Investigators said neighbors thought they heard gun shots Halloween night or in the early morning of November 1st in the area of the crime scene but didn’t know if the gunshots had come from the home.
