Update: Name of officer involved in fatal armed robbery released

Update 2: Tulsa Police have released the name of the officer involved in Saturday morning's deadly armed robbery near 21st and Garnett.

Cpl. Daniel Miller, an 18-year TPD veteran, was one of the officers to fire shots at the suspects' vehicle. The Tulsa County Sheriff's Office also tells KRMG Sgt. Rick Treadwell was the deputy involved.

Police identified Karina Sandoval-Jimenez as the female who was shot and killed inside the vehicle. The other suspect in the car has been identified as Brian Ayub. He was taken to the hospital and was released. After his release, he was arrested for robbery with a firearm.

Update 1: Tulsa police say Adrian Ayub has been taken into custody. 

A female accomplice was shot and killed and a second male suspect was also injured.  Their names haven't been released. 

The suspects are accused of driving at a deputy and officer, who were forced to defend themselves.

Original:  An armed robbery turned deadly early Saturday morning in east Tulsa when officers opened fire on suspects they say were trying to run them down in the parking lot.

We've learned one female suspect was shot and killed in the back seat of the getaway vehicle.

A male suspect was shot and taken to the hospital.

Tulsa police say this all happened during an armed robbery at El 7 Marez, near 21st and Garnett.

Sources at the scene tell KRMG a second male suspect was shot with a bean bag round and taken into custody without serious injury.

They also told KRMG the suspects were all Hispanic, and believed to be in their late teens or early 20s.

Two male suspects robbed the restaurant at gunpoint around 1:08 a.m. after approaching employees who were taking out the trash.

They forced them back inside the restaurant, and one employee was pistol-whipped during the robbery.

A sheriff's deputy and a police officer arrived on the scene roughly one minute later, and saw the two men wearing hoodies exiting the restaurant.

The men ignored commands to surrender and jumped into a vehicle.

At that point, they drove toward the deputy and the officer, who both opened fire.

The female who was killed was in the back seat of the vehicle.

Multiple weapons were recovered by police.

It's believed at least one of the male suspects was involved in an earlier armed robbery.

Two Dollar General employees were ambushed as they left their store at closing Friday night.

Tulsa police say the incident happened just after 11 p.m., near 41st and Garnett.

The suspect forced the employees back into the store at gunpoint.

Police say he then waited till the time safe could be opened, so he could take the cash.

Before exiting, the suspect made the employees go to the back of the store.

Police say he then fled the scene, grabbing cigarettes and snacks on the way out.

Evidence from the Dollar General robbery was found at the shooting scene.

  • “When God tells me I gotta do something, I gotta do it,”  when he interrupted the proceedings and implored the jury to return a not guilty verdict in the trial of a Buda woman accused of trafficking a teen girl for sex. The jury ended up finding Gloria Romero-Perez guilty of continuous trafficking of a person and sentenced her to 25 years in prison. They found her not guilty of a separate charge of sale or purchase of a child. Robison, who also presides in Hays and Caldwell counties, is scheduled to return to the bench in Comal County on Jan. 31. His actions could trigger an investigation from the State Commission on Judicial Conduct, which has disciplined Robison in the past — in 2011, he improperly jailed a Caldwell County grandfather who had called him a fool.  As news of Robison’s maybe-divinely-inspired comment made the rounds online, many people were shocked at the news.  Here’s a sampling of what people are saying. What do you think? Was the judge out of line? Let us know in the comments.
  • Already raising questions about possible investigatory bias inside the FBI, Republicans in Congress are now demanding more answers about how five months of text messages between two senior FBI employees on the Hillary Clinton email probe, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, were not archived and properly retained by the bureau. “The loss of records from this period is concerning because it is apparent from other records that Mr. Strzok and Ms. Page communicated frequently about the investigation,” said Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) in a letter to the FBI Director. The FBI says the texts weren’t kept because of a misconfiguration of software upgrades on cell phones issued to employees. That explanation fell flat on Capitol Hill. “This is a “my dog ate my homework” level excuse,” said Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC). “Americans deserve to know if there was rampant anti-Trump bias at the FBI, and certainly if there was an effort to cover it up.” How did the FBI lose 5 months of text messages between employees? Read the letter to @FBI Director Wray asking questions about alarming FBI activities here: — Senator Ron Johnson (@SenRonJohnson) January 22, 2018 The review of how the FBI handled the Clinton email case has gone hand in hand with assertions by Republicans that officials inside the FBI were biased in favor of Clinton, and biased against President Donald Trump, saying that may have bled into the subsequent investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election. In a joint statement, three House GOP lawmakers said the details of newly revealed texts were “extremely troubling,” and showed bias involved in the investigation. “The omission of text messages between December 2016 and May 2017, a critical gap encompassing the FBI’s Russia investigation, is equally concerning, ” said Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), and Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA). The texts between Strzok and Page, would have covered a period during the Trump transition, running up to the time that Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel investigation began. Few specifics were released from the latest batch of FBI texts to detail what exactly the Republicans had found, as GOP lawmakers instead focused on the overall situation – for example, Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX) said the texts he saw “revealed manifest bias among top FBI officials.” . @RepRatcliffe on 5-month gap discovered in new FBI texts: 'For former prosecutors like @TGowdySC & myself…it makes it harder & harder for us to explain away one strange coincidence after another.' — Fox News (@FoxNews) January 23, 2018 The discovery of the missing texts swiftly brought back memories for Republicans of how thousands of emails went missing of Lois Lerner, a top Internal Revenue Service officials involved in a controversy about bias against more conservative groups seeking non-profit status. Strzok and Page are important figures for two reasons – they were both part of the Clinton email investigation, and then had roles in Mueller’s investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election. Two were found to be having an affair; Strzok, a senior counterintelligence official, was reassigned from the Mueller probe after the discovery of the text messages between the two.
  • Jury selection began Monday for a Tulsa case that made national headlines. Stanley Vernon Majors is accused in the killing of 37-year-old Khalid Jabara in August 2016. Majors faces first-degree murder and hate crime charges in the fatal shooting. Prosecutors say Majors was in a feud with Jabara's family that lasted several years. Majors previously pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and malicious intimidation and harassment, which is Oklahoma’s hate-crime law. Majors' attorneys have indicated that they will present a mental health-based defense, though Majors was previously found competent to stand trial. The trial could extend into next week.
  • Police tried to pull over a driver for a warrant Monday afternoon in north Tulsa.  The man ran to the back of a home near Pine and Tacoma.  “He started to try to kick in the back door of that residence,” said Officer Jeanne McKenzie with the Tulsa Police Department. “When he did that, he actually shot himself.” Police say he then picked up the shotgun and started to run around the side of the house.  Two officers fired their weapons. The man was pronounced dead at the hospital.
