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.
