He's the gunman who got away. Tulsa police department tells FOX23 officers thought they had him trapped inside a home in west Tulsa. Three officers surrounded the residence, near 54th and 33rd West Avenue this morning but failed at the capture attempt.
FOX23 dug into more details of what exactly happened around 3:30 a.m. Saturday, in west Tulsa.
"We heard two gunshots," that's what Jamie Cox said woke up her and her husband.
"Probably about 30 minutes later we heard two more gun shots so we got up."
She lives down the street from where the standoff happened. She says she spent the morning talking with neighbors trying to figure out why so many police cars flooded her street.
"All we could see was cops all the way down the down the street, it was kind of unnerving to not know what's going on but with this many cops you know it's pretty serious," Cox said.
Police say it started as a family fight. They got a call about gunfire just after 3:30 this morning.
The suspect fired several rounds at a male and adult female, but no one was hit.
When police arrived asking for the shooter, who they've identified as Deandre Conchiatis, he wouldn't come out.
Police tell FOX23 they talked to him in the house over the phone then the special operations team showed up.
Special Operations tells us,
"We continue to try and make verbal announcements to make contact but no response. Subsequently we used OC gas inside the residence still in an attempt to get him to come out."
Officers tell me they then went inside to attempt to make contact with the individual. They say once they got inside he was nowhere to be found. Neighbors say it's scary, especially because it happened right across the street from a park where children play.
"You see this stuff on TV, you know it's real but to have it this close to home... it's hard," explains Cox.
Officers tell me this case remains under investigation and they are actively looking for Conchiatis.
