    KRMG told you about a recent homicide at a house near Pine and Sheridan.  Tulsa officers returned to the home overnight, but not to investigate the homicide.  Instead, shots were fired at the home.  Police at the scene tell us nobody was hurt.  However, the house was hit several times.  The suspected killer in the homicide, Jose Ibarra-Pelligrin,, has not been caught.  Police are looking into whether the two cases are connected.  Anyone with information regarding the incident overnight is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS.
  • Witnesses call TPD when they hear 25 gunshots in their neighborhood. Police found several different types of shell casings in the street near 5900 East Marshall after the shots had been fired around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday. Tulsa Police Sgt. Adam Dawson said there was more than one shooter. Bullets hit the house several times, but no one was injured. There were four people inside the home. We're told this is the same residence where a man was shot to death last week. Detectives are investigating whether the shootings are connected.
  • The video opens with game warden Marni Loftis explaining about the animal.  “They’re extremely strong, powerful birds and catching them can be a little bit difficult” she begins. “But we’re going to get him caught and take him to a wildlife rehabilitater where he can can be healed up by vets at the Tulsa zoo.” Once captured the eagle was taken to the rescue facility at Wild Heart Ranch near Claremore where Annette King took over. “On examination this looks like a through-and-through wound to me” she begins. King then describes the wound more in-depth.  “We’re almost an inch deep into this part of the wing,” she continues. Then King gives the bad news. “this part of the wing is going to have to be amputated” she reveals. But there is good news. Vets think the bird will live as long as there are no infection issues followihg surgery. The eagle is now at the Tulsa zoo where it will be rehabbed and live out it’s years. The following is from the Oklahoma Game Warden’s Facebook page. “The eagle was likely shot near where it was found, north of Sandusky in Delaware County around 495 Rd. If you have information about this incident, please contact Game Warden Marni Loftis at 918-533-2678 or call Operation Game Thief for an anonymous report at 1-800-522-8039, either way, you could receive a reward for information that leads to a conviction.”
  • A burglar got away after allegedly firing a shot early Tuesday morning.  The scene happened around 3:30 a.m. near 41st and Mingo.  Tulsa police at the scene say the car burglar was caught red-handed by the owner of the vehicle.  During this time, the suspect fired a shot.  Investigators don’t know if the burglar was aiming at the car owner.  They do know no bullet holes or casing have been found.  Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS.
  • A gunshot is fired when a man confronts a car burglar. The suspect fired a shot before taking off from the the scene near 3800 South 88 East Place. Tulsa police are not sure if the suspect fired at the car owner, or just fired into the air to scare him off. No one was hurt. Police were unable to find any bullet holes and no shell casings were found at the scene around 3:30 a.m. Tuesday.
  • KRMG has learned someone smashed a glass church door over the weekend with a Saint Mary statue. The scene happened at the Saint Augustine Catholic Church on Sunday morning near Apache and Lewis. The pastor tells us he's more sad, than mad. 'It's so sad to see somebody do this to the house of the Lord,' the pastor said.  Nothing was actually stolen from the church. Services went on as normal and KRMG's told the congregation prayed for the vandals. Anybody with information regarding the vandalism is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS.
  • A man is arrested for burglary and stealing from a 4-star Purple Heart recipient. Tulsa police arrested 36-year-old Mark Smith Jr. near 3700 South Harvard just before 10 p.m. Monday. An officer had stopped Smith for not wearing a seatbelt when Smith parked the truck and ran away. We're told Smith hid in a backyard, then broke into a house where the homeowner confronted him. Smith was apprehended nearby. Officers say Smith was in a stolen truck, bearing a stolen tag. Smith is in jail for burglary, possessing stolen property, stealing a truck and false impersonation. He is also a convicted felon.
  • We're learning more about a 50-year-old woman firing a shot up in the air outside a south Tulsa movie theater Sunday night. Mary Hill told officers she fired the shot to help disperse a bunch of people fighting in the parking lot of the Cinemark near 71st and Highway 169. Parents we spoke to say Hill could have easily hurt someone, like a child. 'I wouldn't want my kids around somebody shooting a gun up in the air for any reason, ever,' one mother said.  Making matters even worse, she doesn't have a license to carry.  Hill has bonded out of the Tulsa County Jail. She faces multiple counts including reckless handling of a firearm and shoot firearms in public.
  • We now know the cause of a house fire in Claremore on Monday. The blaze started in a residence near 13th and Dorothy. Investigators tell us the family's youngest son accidentally started the fire by knocking a lamp over, which then ignited a couch. The father tells us the boy also helped save the family by immediately warning everybody. 'The youngest son came in the bedroom saying there was a spider,' the father said. 'I guess he was saying fire.' Smoke detectors also alerted the two adults and three children inside the home to the fire. They all made it out of the house safely.  The family lost almost everything in the fire.
  • You might know Teresa Danks as the panhandling teacher here in Tulsa. Educators around the state think of her as the woman trying to get them better wages. Danks has started a petition titled “Mary Fallin: Oklahoma Teacher Walkout?” in a last ditch effort to get the governor to do something. If this doesn't work, Danks is talking about a possible walkout. 'They can't replace us,' Danks said. 'They don't have enough people to replace us. If we come together as a collective group, we have more power.' The petition already has more than 3,000 signatures.  A legislative move called Step up, failed last week. The plan would have given teachers a $5,000 raise.
