The Tulsa Police Department arrested a suspect Tuesday afternoon in the city’s 36th homicide of the year.
Police were sent to the Apache Manor housing complex in north Tulsa Monday at 11:05 p.m. for a reported shooting.
Officers arrived to find the victim, 24-year-old Gregory Robinson, unresponsive in the parking lot. Robinson was rushed to a hospital and later died from the shooting.
Through the investigation, detectives identified the suspect as 14-year-old Keandre Shivers.
Detectives determined Shivers was in the parking lot with the victim right before the shooting. Detectives believe there was a possible scuffle over a gun, and Shivers ended up shooting Robinson, then ran away.
Officers served a search warrant at Apache Manor Tuesday and recovered the gun used in the shooting and Shivers was taken into custody on a charge of first-degree murder.
Under state law, a 14-year-old charged with murder is considered a “youthful offender” and Shivers is charged as an adult
