TULSA, Okla. — One man is dead after an officer-involved shooting in midtown Tulsa on Tuesday morning, October 23.
Tulsa police told FOX23 they were serving a "high-risk warrant" for firearms and narcotics at a home near 11th and Yale. Officers said they had a SWAT team out because they knew the man they were looking for would have guns.
Police and SWAT were on the scene when Shaunday Mullins let two kids out of the house. Officers said that is when Mullins fired a shot outside.
In January 2019, Tulsa police identified the officer involved as Officer J. Lawless. He is a Prescision Rifle Operator on the Special Operations Team and police said he discharged a departmental issued AR-15.
One officer returned fire and police believe Mullins was hit twice in the chest. He died after being taken from the scene by EMSA.
Police said the two children who were let out are not injured and Heather Brazeal -- who was inside the house -- is in custody.
