Tulsa police have identified a person of interest in a shooting at the QuikTrip near 71st and 92nd E. Avenue on Friday.
Police are looking for Terrell Deon Moore for questioning.
Investigators say a conflict between two groups of people escalated as they sat in two vehicles side-by-side at the stop light. It's unclear what the conflict was about, but investigators say a man got out of one car with a baseball bat and started bashing the other car. Then, the shooter got out of the second car and fired five or six shots at the first car, but in the direction of the QuikTrip entrance.
The convenience store was crowded at the time, and witnesses said it was a terrifying experience.
"It happened so quickly, I was stunned," Debbie Ravenscroft said.
Ravenscroft was inside the QuikTrip getting a drink.
"I put my hand on the door and I heard the pop pop pop pop pop pop," she said. "My first thought was guns, but then I thought 'oh, somebody...it's firecrackers.' But people were running and scurrying."
Ravenscroft's friend, Pam Farney, was already outside about to get in her car when the bullets started flying right at her. She tried to hide behind her car.
"All of the sudden while I was kind of crouched down over here, I felt air start to shoot out of my tire," Farney said. "So, it was that close to my foot."
It was hard for her not to panic.
"This can't be happening," she said. "It's a surreal feeling at that moment. And it feels like everything slows down. And you're just like, am I going to die here? That's what you think is 'this is it.'"
Griffin, 11, was in the car with his brother and mother when he saw the whole scene play out.
"I saw a guy get out of the drivers side, and limp over here toward the gas pumps," Griffin said. "And I saw the guy that fired the shots go into the vehicle and drive away."
The motive for the conflict is unclear, and investigators are unsure if it began at the QuikTrip, or somewhere else. But they aren't ruling out the possibility that it was gang related.
With so many people in the line of fire, Farney said she was amazed nobody else was hurt.
"I'm just sorry that my car got killed," she said.
FOX23 News is told two people were injured in the incident. One had relatively minor injuries to his head, caused by broken glass. The other victim was shot. He was driven by another person he was with to St. John Medical Center. FOX23 is told his condition was dire for some time, but doctors now expect the 30-year-old to survive.
