Suspect, victim identified after shooting in north Tulsa

TULSA, Okla. — A man is dead, and police have another man in custody after a shooting in north Tulsa Monday.

The shooting took place near Columbia and Virgin around 2 p.m.

Police on the scene said a man was shot in the head, and they believe he may have been involved in a collision with another vehicle.

They closed streets in the area during the investigation.

The victim died around 3 p.m. Monday. He was identified as Temp Burdick, 33.




Monday night, police brought a man into custody for questioning in connection with the shooting. They later identified him as David Scott, 43.




Police say they believe Burdick and Scott had an argument over allegations that Burdick was abusive toward women, and the argument escalated into a five-block chase, after which Scott allegedly shot Burdick and fled.

Scott faces a murder charge and two unrelated misdemeanor warrants, but police say they are continuing to gather evidence.

The homicide will be Tulsa's 80th for the year.

The city set a record with 82 homicides in 2016.

Homicide Sergeant Dave Walker said Monday that, unless local homicides slow, he believes the city will set a new record in 2017.
