    Least terns. A federal lawsuit. Greenpeace. Vandals. Industrious beavers. Angry homeowners. Bureaucratic delays. These were among the obstacles and setbacks that had to be overcome before the Creek Turnpike was built. At one point, the chairman of the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority declared it a “total disaster” and exclaimed: “The Creek Turnpike in Tulsa, God only knows when that’ll be completed,” John Kilpatrick said, as reported by the Tulsa World’s Wayne Greene on Oct. 19, 1990. “If we had it to do all over again, we wouldn’t do that project,” the exasperated Kilpatrick said after federal bureaucrats held up construction of...

    Tulsa hit a new high for homicides in a year early Friday with a pair of deaths, including a woman who died after being stabbed during an altercation with a friend who was helping her move. Tahmachqua Floyd, 24, was the city’s 72nd homicide victim of 2016. The previous record of 71 was set in 2009, according to Tulsa World and Tulsa Police Department records. The new record didn’t stand for long. Just minutes after Floyd’s death, Leon Crockett, 37, died of gunshot wounds he received Nov. 19 in a north Tulsa apartment, police reported.

    A day after police in Oklahoma released video that shows a white Tulsa police officer fatally shooting an unarmed black man, attorneys representing the slain man’s family released photos that they said contradict a key claim in authorities’ version of events. At a news conference Tuesday afternoon, Benjamin Crump — a civil rights lawyer who has represented many families of those killed in high-profile police shootings — said Terence Crutcher never reached his hands into the driver’s side window of his stalled sport-utility vehicle before he was shot by police. Crutcher couldn’t have reached into the vehicle, Crump said, because...

    (CNN)From different angles, the videos show the same scene. An unarmed black man walks on a Tulsa, Oklahoma, road with his hands in the air.

Federal, state and local authorities are investigating the Friday night shooting. Crutcher's family says he was waiting...
