My wife is working at the university (OU Tulsa) today and about 20 cops came whizzing by my office window (66th and Sheridan) at a very high rate of speed.  She says they arrived at the intersection of 41st, Yale and one slid into the middle of the intersection and stopped traffic.  He was carrying what she believed to be an AR-15 and wearing body armor.

Anyone know?

Quote
The third police chase in 24 hours in Tulsa ended near 43rd Street and Yale Avenue about 2 p.m. and the driver of the car has been pronounced dead.
The man driving the small sedan was firing shots at officers during the chase, News On 6 sources say. We have not confirmed if officers fired back or the cause of the man's death.

Osage SkyNews 6 captured the chase in its final moments. The car finally came to a rest in the median on Yale near the south side of Promenade Mall.

TPD officers quickly surrounded the vehicle with guns drawn for a few minutes, then moved closer behind bulletproof shields toward the car before determining the driver was unresponsive.

According to SkyNews 6 pilot Will Kavanagh, EMSA did not make any attempt to perform lifesaving measures.

Crime scene tape has been strung across the road and officers are processing the scene.

Drivers should prepare to take an alternate route this afternoon.

The Northern Oklahoma Violent Task Force was involved in the chase.

They flew by my woman's work at 26th and Sheridan. She text me at 2:09 P.M.

She said that it was just undercover, truck and Police SUV that were traveling at a high speed headed South.

I saw the first-responder vehicle lights as I was coming back from our company Christmas luncheon at the Doubletree Warren Place while driving north on Yale.  I got on 44 eastbound, but the traffic looked horrible north of the I-44 bridge.  Wondered what that was.

Yeah. All of the cars that zipped by my office were black and brown unmarked.

Now this is the report:
He took off in a vehicle, and led police on a chase that lasted about a half hour, during which TPD says he fired at officers at three different locations.
Using a shotgun, he shot at his pursuers near 65th and Sheridan, 21st and Yale, and 38th and Yale.
At 41st and Yale, police say, he rammed a TPD vehicle and officers opened fire on him.
It's unclear if they hit him, but within two blocks he wrecked the car on the median.
At that point, police say the man turned a gun on himself and committed suicide.
They have not released his name.
Police have not reported any injuries  to officers.


When they flew by 65th and Sheridan (I have the corner office at exactly 65th and Sheridan) I heard and saw no gunfire.  Just speeding cars.  I suppose I turned my head around too late to see the the assailant's vehicle as they all blazed up the hill, but I certainly heard no shots!?

Task force.  Something didnt go as planned.
I counted eleven marked vehicles southbound in just the time it took me to cross Yale on the BA.

I just got back from a walk.  Something said to go to Best Buy.  Saw a ton of re-route traffic but didn't know why.

Why were there no sirens?  I didn't hear them from Harvard & 41st.

Would have been from the wrong direction.  They were chasing from east to west.. you west of the furthest-most western part of the chase.

They were flying red south past 36th & Yale while I was waiting on 36th to turn north on Yale.  MC nearly got clobbered by a brown unmarked unit that turned west off Darlington onto 27th Pl, ostensibly trying to intercept at Yale.  She said even more units were flying west on 31st once she got to Hudson.

I suspect this was an all units call-out.  Must have been at least 30-40 units when I crossed Yale on I-44 30 minutes later.  Wild how many people just on here saw or heard the procession going by.  I'm normally home for lunch and gone much earlier but couldn't get away from the office at noon today.

Was something wrong with the helicopter, or do they just enjoy driving around town GTA style, putting innocent bystanders at risk?

I've found that taunting people form helicopters rarely makes them surrender. The only exclusion is if said helicopter was Airwolf, or if you're in a pinch, Blue Thunder.
