From Tulsa's 24-Hour Fox News Center

Local News

  • The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is looking into a shooting in Wagoner after the victim's body is found in Osage County. Joshua Daniel Blaylock was arrested Saturday after Daniel Potts' body was found near Keystone Lake. We're told Blaylock directed investigators to where Potts' body could be found. Potts was shot during an argument with Blaylock at a residence in Wagoner on Friday.
  • Multiple agencies took part in a sobriety checkpoint and saturation patrol late Saturday night. The checkpoint was conducted near East 4th and South Elgin. “Members of the Tulsa Police Department, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, the Oklahoma ABLE Commission and the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office participated in the enforcement checking 228 vehicles,” police said.  “The effort resulted in 12 DUI arrests, 103 citations issued and 1 transporting a loaded firearm arrest. All numbers are preliminary.” The sobriety checkpoint was paid for by a grant from the Oklahoma Highway Safety Office.
  • A 49-year-old Midwest City man called police on Saturday to report some disturbing news. “I just shot my wife,” Robert Moon reportedly said.   Police tell us Denise Moon was found inside her vehicle in the driveway with a gunshot wound to the chest. She was pronounced dead a short time later at the hospital. So far, a motive hasn't been released.  Police did say there is no history of domestic violence at the residence. Domestic violence has become one of the leading killers of women in Oklahoma.  
  • This weekends soggy weather has quieted talk about the Tulsa area being in a drought. In fact, National Weather Service Meteorologist Robert Darby says Tulsa is beating the curve. “Over the weekend we saw rainfall over three inches,” Darby said.  “That put us for the year up around 3.31 inches above normal.  It appears the drought conditions are definitely waning at this point.” There is no rain in the forecast for Sunday.  Expect to see sunny skies, with a high around 69 degrees. Our next chance for storms will be Tuesday night.  
  • We report about car chases on a weekly basis. However, very rarely do we hear about a bicycle chase. That's exactly what happened on Saturday near Charles Page Boulevard and 65th West Avenue. Police report Tad Kleiner tried to turn and ended up crashing, due to wet pavement.  No word on how fast he was going on the bicycle.   He allegedly continued to resist arrest, but was eventually taken into custody. Kleiner was weighed down while on his ride.  Officers recovered two firearms, meth and prescription pills.
  • The state of Arkansas plans to conduct a double execution on Monday. Two condemned killers who admit they're guilty but fear poor health could lead to extreme pain during lethal injections might become the first inmates put to death in a double execution in the U.S. in more than 16 years. Jack Jones (pictured, left) and Marcel Williams are set to die Monday night. If put to death, they would be the second and third Arkansas inmates executed this month. Arkansas originally wanted to execute eight inmates before one of its lethal injection drugs expires at the end of the month in the nation's most aggressive execution schedule since the U.S. Supreme Court restored the death penalty in 1976. Arkansas put Ledell Lee to death last week in its first execution since 2005. Another inmate, Kenneth Williams, is set for execution Thursday.
  • Saturday, funeral services were held in Tulsa, for Oklahoma State Rep. David Brumbaugh. He passed away last weekend due to an apparent heart attack. Friends, family and colleagues had nothing but good things to say about Brumbaugh. “Every time that he spoke, he did it not because of what he thought politically, but because it’s what he thought was right,” one colleague said.  “Hopefully, those of us that are still there will be able to follow that.” The service was held at Tulsa Bible Church.  During the service, Brumbaugh was remembered as a man dedicated to public service and to his faith.
  • A cashier is said to be in stable condition, after getting shot during an armed robbery Friday night. The shooting happened around 7:29 p.m., at the RK Food Mart on North Utica Avenue. “After the cashier cooperated and handed over an undisclosed amount of cash, the suspect shot him in the foot one time,” Tulsa police said.  “The victim was transported to a local hospital for treatment.” A description of the suspect hasn’t been released.   Anyone with information regarding the robbery is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS.
  • The heavens opened up in and around the Tulsa area on Friday, but how much rain did we actually get? National Weather Service Meteorologist Robert Darby has the answer. “We did see wide-spread 3 to 4 inches across a large portion of northeast Oklahoma and Tulsa County,” Darby said.   There is a chance of rain in the forecast for Saturday as well.   Sapulpa suffered some damage in Friday’s storms.   While driving around, we found uprooted trees, a destroyed gazebo and one resident received quite the surprise when he woke up. “Getting my dogs ready to go outside and kind of noticed I had no roof towards the bathroom area,” the resident said.   Crews were out helping with the debris around the city.
  • United Airlines is apparently trying to make the 'bumping' process a little less confrontational. A United passenger tells People magazine that when he was checking in for his flight on the airline's website, a pop-up screen asked him if he would be interested in taking a different flight in exchange for a travel certificate of at least $200. A United spokesman says they've done it for years, but the passenger said he didn't see it on the United check-in he did a few days before. Whether it’s new or not, the airline is taking other steps to try to avoid the ugly situation where Dr. David Dao was dragged down the aisle of a plane. United also now has a rule in place that passengers cannot be bumped if they're already seated on their flight. You can read more about the story here.
