TULSA, Okla. (AP) - The man who saved two women from a pit bull attack is being honored for his actions by Tulsa leaders.
A ceremony is planned for 1:30 p.m. Monday at Tulsa City Hall to honor Mike Harrell with two citizen appreciation awards.
Harrell shot and killed a pit bull that was attacking two women who were distributing religious literature in a Tulsa neighborhood last month. Harrell says he was working nearby when he heard the women's screams.
Officials say Harrell likely saved the lives of Irene Parker and Beverly Wright.
Mayor Dewey Bartlett is scheduled to attend Monday's ceremony, along with Tulsa Police Chief Chuck Jordan.
