Tulsa police are investigating a deadly double shooting near the Best Buy at 5520 East Skelly Drive.
According to officers, around 2:30p.m. Saturday, a car pulled up to the Best Buy and a man inside got into an argument with another man standing out front. The man in the car pulled out a gun and shot at least nine bullets towards the store, said police.
The man involved in the argument was hit, along with an innocent bystander. The bystander was inside the store with his 4-year-old granddaughter.

Be in prayer for the family of the innocent bystander who was killed. How horrible for his little granddaughter.
Time for the white folk to move to Glenpool or Tulsa.

Bah, messed up on the first one. Ruined my own joke! ;-)
I was pulling for you and you did get it right
Skelly drive is the nice south side of Tulsa. Decay is everywhere I guess even the nice side of Tulsa has probably changed too over the years.
I saw a shootout in Tulsa many years ago right in front of a Mexican restaurant. About 150 feet from me.
It was a Trayvon wannabe getting even.
Don’t tell me the shooter was a black guy? Say it ain’t so.
Romney’s fault I bet.
Ha, ha, thanks! I knew I could count on the forbearance of my fellow Freepers! :-)
It’s even worse than you think. The mall on 71st Street is “iffy” now. I wasn’t kidding when I said people might have to move to Glenpool or Owasso.
Wow, that’s frightening! What part of town?
Send all gang members to Gitmo.
Commenters on the local newspaper story on this tragedy are pointing to nearby Section 8 housing as a source of problems in the area.
“Innocent bystander” — oh how I hate that term, especially in this situation where it appears the man in the store couldn’t even know he was a “bystander” since the incident was occurring outside the store. I can’t begin to imagine being a family member of the in-store victim.
“So far we know they are looking for a black man, 5’ 8”, 160lbs.”
Okay, I won’t tell you. Surprise, surprise, surprise...
Seems it just keeps getting worse.
Probobly true. Most of the people who live in that don't have anything to do all day except play scratch off lotto tickets, get drunk, get high, steal things, and cause trouble. I guess if we just gave them more of our hard earned cash they'd turn their lives around, get jobs, and become productive citizens.
We have all done it at some time or other. I have done it several times. Usually I know the instant I hit post the second time but once in a while it seems to happen on it’s own.
The last time I was in Best Buy, looking for a lap top deal, there were 3 young black women monopolizing the display, surfing the internet. They obviously weren’t buying and I was disgusted that Best Buy allowed them unlimited access. I was actually trying to compare models and I couldn’t with them there. I was there for probably an hour. Next time I need something I’ll buy online.
..when you look at FACTS....whenever you have an “INFLUX” and conditions change for the worst.....it’s got to be the weather! They turn a blind eye to the obvious and look for remedies that only destroy.
Folks, it's getting time to take out the trash for real. This shouldn't be happening in our country. Yet it is an everyday occurrence and all we get are pandering politicians, Liberal excuses, an enabling DOJ and Homeland Security, a Commie President, shyster lawyers, shrugging judges, race-baiting Al Sharptons and Louis Farrakhans, feral street rats everywhere, further threats against the law-abiding or those trying to protect themselves, and LaRaza goons demanding even more of our country.
Bring back genuine justice and the gallows. If "the system" can't make that work well enough, maybe it has to go to the next level - an enraged and engaged citizenry and the nearest stout tree or handy ditch.
They shouldn't be afforded the respect and dignity that an execution by firing squad brings, the expense of the electric chair, or even the quiet 'slipping away' of lethal injection.
Just a hood pulled over the head and the snap of the rope.
“The mall on 71st Street is iffy now.”
Really? Lots of good shopping around that Mall.
I’ve been thinking about moving to the Tulsa area. Is Tulsa is going that down-hill?
In about 2006, my family moved into a furnished condo in a very nice area. With the housing crisis, it became obvious that some of the condos had been made Section 8. Feral youts and adults both took over the pool and we quit using it- big change from the couple of senior citizens and regular sunbathers. We bought a German Shepherd puppy and found a house in another very nice section of town- lots of $500,000+ homes. Unfortunately, there was a condo project in the center of it that went Section 8. I had to suffer a police helicopter circling overhead pretty much at least once a week. The grocery store had to be remolded to prevent theft and the stores next door locked their doors during the day. Then, a house that sat vacant for a year behind us went Section 8. I think the tenents lasted a month before the HOA kicked them out and I nearly called the cops on them twice. They absolutely trashed the beautiful home, too. I live in a guard gated community now with my dog and guns. I can’t believe what our country has come to.
“I cant believe what our country has come to.”
You gave the liberals to thank for that. A more misguided group of people the world has not seen.
I took a job in Tulsa in 2007 and moved my wife here in 2009. We moved here from Oklahoma City and I can’t say that it is significantly different with the usual places to avoid and knowing you can’t live in an urban area in “Condition White”. As far as Woodland Hills Mall is concerned, just the area’s traffic alone is enough for me to keep away, especially around Christmas. I’ve not heard of other problems there.

Problem with those is when TSHTF you'll all end up killing each other inside the gate. Sooner or later. Plus a magnet for the demographic you were talking about in your comment. I'm probably safer surrounded by our Section 8 tenants.
Soon they will be coming for your guns and dog and will smash down your guarded gate. How dare you try to insulate yourself from the less fortunate among us?
Section 8 Housing brings the ghetto right to your own doorstep.
In saner times one might would ask, "What could the government possibly be thinking to do such a stupid thing?" - but I think we all know it's part of their master plan to destroy America and our free society from the ground up.
So, they are blockbusting us and overwhelming us with the trash they so cleverly spawned since LBJ's Great Society kicked in until all that is left is for us to call on them for help and plead for their mercy. In the end, they want us all living in Soviet-style apartment blocs full of their sympathetic gang enforcers who will control and exploit we weak, simpering, begging, impotent whitebreads completely. Just as we deserve. This is simply part of their plan. In their minds it is either accept that or the gulag.
Like I say, it is about time to take out the trash before the trash takes us out - and the trash does not consist exclusively of feral youts. They are just expendable and stupid foot soldiers. The trash chain goes much, much higher, even into guilded mansions and the highest halls of power...
I’ll live dangerously and go get some fried chicken about 3:00am.
“Soon they will be coming for your guns and dog”
They’d be better off meeting my gun than my dog. Death would be slightly quicker.
“I’m probably safer surrounded by our Section 8 tenants.”
Nah, they’re just fattening you up for the feast.
Look at Broken Arrow instead of Tulsa. Much more pleasant there.
It’s time for vets in these communities to organize, arm themselves and then clean out their neighborhoods. If you gotta kill a few hundred, so what? You’re at war and these savages are attacking your children, your mothers and your grandparents. Kill them by the thousands, if necessary. That goes double for the mercenary traitors in the fascist federal bureaucracy.
when CW2 breaks out these areas will likely take care of themselves. The gang wars will start at the same time.
***Skelly drive is the nice south side of Tulsa.***
Not south of I-44 Skelly Bypass and Peoria. Section 8 housing there.
***The mall on 71st Street is iffy now.***
When I lived there 41 years ago, the best spot in town was the SOUTHROADS mall (41 and Yale) across from Southland. All the shopping centers around 41 st were safe from Peoria to Mingo.
***whenever you have an INFLUX and conditions change for the worst***
Mingo and Admiral used to be a good place to shop, near Cotton’s Restaurant. Now it is more like Little Mexico.
Don’t take me back to Tulsa!
Sad, my hometown is on the ropes.
Tulsa has changed over the years, as all cities have. The good shopping area used to be around 41st and Yale (the area where this shooting occurred), then the main shopping area became the 71st street corridor. It is still quite busy along there with the Woodland Hills Mall and many other stores, and restaurants, but it is changing. There are several older apartment complexes along 71st, and I think they are all going Section 8. That’s where the problem starts. The mall isn’t too bad during the week, but we avoid it on weekends, especially at night. The security there is a joke.
Owasso is booming (although it has slowed a bit due to the layoffs at American Airlines), and there are many new stores and restaurants there. Broken Arrow, Bixby, and Jenks area also growing, although parts of Broken Arrow are experiencing some “thug” creep.
The newest shopping area is called Tulsa Hills and it is off of Hwy. 75 in Jenks. It is an open air mall, though, and not a traditional one like Woodland Hills.
The old money shops at Utica Square at 21st and Utica. They have stores like Restoration Hardware and Pottery Barn. The trendy area of town, Cherry Street, is near there. Lots of young people go there at night to party at the bars and restaurants, but it isn’t my cup of tea.
The streets are in dire need of repair and improvement, but the Chamber of Commerce types still want to spend citizens’ money on artsy-fartsy museums downtown and fanciful projects along the river.
Hope this helps.
Yeah, I know. We would really like to move to the OKC area where most of our family lives, but my husband’s job is here. :-(
You could always have said, “Excuse me young man, I’m interested in buying one of these. Would you mind stepping aside for a moment so I can take a closer look?”
Oh - maybe that wouldn’t be such a good idea... :-/
That’s helpful... thanks!
“Not south of I-44 Skelly Bypass and Peoria. Section 8 housing there.”
Does anyone have a map of the Section 8 areas?
Across from the mall. I was about to go out the door from Border’s Books (IIRC) when something stopped me. I hesitated for a few seconds and then walked out and watched the whole thing unfold about 10 or 15 sec later.
Actually there wasn’t anything frightening about it, oddly enough. However, I decided I might accidentally catch a ricochet so I picked an angle that put a building corner between me and possibly direct fire. I could look around and see what was up.
