Tulsa police have released the name of the man who led police on a chase Wednesday afternoon.
Officials say Christopher Teter, 20, led police on a chase and later committed suicide in the 4200 block of S. Yale.
The chase started just after 1:30 p.m. at a QuikTrip near 71st and Memorial and ended near 43rd and Yale around 2 p.m. on Wednesday. Yale is now blocked in that area. Police say there were gunshots during the chase. A car came to a stop in a median.
Teter had been placed on Tulsa's Most Wanted list. He'd been wanted on two felony warrants for failure to appear on drug possession charges.
Before Wednesday's ordeal, police had received a kidnapping report Nov. 19 that alerted them of Teter and several other individuals who have yet to be named.
According to police, Teter and the unnamed associates kidnapped a man from Tulsa and left him in the woods, located in Rogers County. Officials said evidence at the scene led them to believe the man had been tortured.
On Wednesday, officials received word of Teter's whereabouts and located him at a QuikTrip in the 7100 block of S. 92nd E. Ave. As officers and canine units moved in on Teter, he fled the parking lot and began firing from his vehicle, officials said.
As Teter approached the 2200 block of S. Yale Ave., he began firing at officers again. This time, officers returned fire, striking his vehicle. Before officers could take Teter into custody, he shot himself in the head with his shotgun, officers said.
The Medical Examiner will look into seeing if the shots fired at Teter's vehicle actually struck him or not.
Police also arrested Matthew Kelly, 20, in connection with the ongoing kidnapping case.
Officials said the investigation into the original kidnapping is still ongoing and they expect more arrests in this case.
