Update: Tulsa Police looking for three suspects in murder outside Papa John's


Tulsa Police arrested three teenagers near 41st and Harvard early Monday morning.

The teens were arrested on outstanding warrants.

They had been driving a vehicle similar to the one in a surveillance video at the scene of the shooting.

UPDATE: Tulsa Police Sgt. Dave Walker says they believe there were three participants in the murder of 53-year-old Robert Horton of Arlington, TX.

He said they've been combing through surveillance video from various sources in and around the Papa John's restaurant at 11th and Delaware and have found images of a vehicle they think could be connected to the crime.

The quality of the video was not good, so the image is not clear.

But Walker said they've enhanced it as much as possible.

Horton was part of a two man crew delivering supplies to the restaurant.

Walker said Horton leaves behind a wife, Lisa.

They had been married for 30 years.

Tulsa police tell KRMG they believe there are people that were in the area around 6:00 am that may not know they witnessed a crime and urge anyone who may have been in the area to call Crime Stoppers 918-596-2477, the Homicide Tip Line at 918-798-8477, or email


A delivery man unloading a semi at a Papa John's restaurant in midtown Tulsa died early Saturday after someone gunned him down in the parking lot.

Police, EMSA and Tulsa Fire responded to the scene at E. 11th St. and S. Delaware Ave. about 6:15 a.m.

The victim's partner told them he heard a commotion, then ran out into the parking lot where he found his co-worker lying on the ground.

Thinking the man had had a heart attack, he called 911, but when the victim arrived at the hospital doctors quickly learned he had been shot.

He died at St. John Medical Center.

A TPD Crime Scene Tech, Mark Ohnesorge, told KRMG at the scene they had recovered some physical evidence, but didn't have much information about the suspects and had not found any witnesses.

"Right now we really don't have a lot to go on," he said. "We're trying to work with physical evidence and see what we can find."

He said they would check surveillance cameras in the area and see if they showed anything.

Investigators also urge anyone who may have been in the area around 6:15 a.m. and may have seen or heard anything related to the murder to call Crime Stoppers 918-596-2477, the Homicide Tip Line at 918-798-8477, or email

Police say the victim was 53 years old, and that the workers were both from the Dallas area.

Tulsa has had 20 homicides so far in 2013.

  • Tulsa police Thursday released video of an incident in which an officer used his patrol car to end a gunfight. Madison Dickson was the suspect in a string of violent crimes that spanned nearly a week when she was spotted in a vehicle near 91st and Harvard last Saturday. She tried to run, and gunfire is heard on the video, which officers say was directed toward them. The officer swerves left as she points the gun at him, then veers right and runs her over as she attempts to flee. Additional videos released to media by TPD indicate an officer also used a Taser on Dickson after she was down, because she still had the gun and wasn’t responding to commands. “She might not be able to, hang on,” one officer says as others are yelling at her to show her hands. EMSA arrived on the scene a few minutes later, but Dickson died from her injuries.
  • After hours of negotiations that featured personal intervention by President Donald Trump, Republican leaders in the Congress were forced to back off a planned vote on a GOP health care bill, unable to find enough votes approve it and send it on to the Senate for further work. While House leaders said votes were possible on Friday, there was no final agreement to vote on, as more conservative members of the House Freedom Caucus refused to get on board with a deal offered by the White House. “We have not gotten enough of our members to get to yes,” said Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), the chair of the Freedom Caucus. “I am still a no at this time,” Meadows told a crush of reporters. “I am desperately trying to get to yes.” Rep. Mark Meadows: “I am still a no at this time. I am desperately trying to get to yes” — CNN Politics (@CNNPolitics) March 23, 2017 Other Freedom Caucus members said very little as they exited a Congressional hearing room after a two hour meeting on the health bill, leaving Meadows to get out the message. “No comment,” said Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL). “Mark’s got everything,” referring to Meadows. “You know I’m not going express the substance of anything that we talked about in there,” said Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) said as reporters trailed him down the hall. Earlier at the White House, there had been optimism after a meeting between Freedom Caucus members and the President.

  • Conservative Republicans opposed to the health care reform bill offered by their leadership have forced a delay in a vote on the measure, which was expected to happen Thursday. House GOP leadership announced they will push the vote back about 2:30 Central Time after a flurry of meetings between Republican members of the Freedom Caucus, moderates pushing the plan, and the White House. The delay is seen as a rebuke of the Trump administration, which has brought pressure to bear in an attempt to bring those more conservative members on board. Those Republicans opposed to the bill in its current form generally want deeper cuts in spending on the program. Some have called it “Obamacare Light,” and say it doesn’t offer enough substantial changes to current law. Those in favor of the bill argue it eliminates the mandate, and puts choice back in the hands of consumers. There’s no official announcement on when House Speaker Paul Ryan might try to reschedule a vote.
  • The CEO of a Connecticut-based marketing firm says job applicants must pass what he has dubbed the “snowflake test” before he will hire them.  In an interview with Stuart Varney on the Fox Business Network, Silent Partner Marketing CEO Kyle Reyes defined a snowflake as “somebody who is going to whine and complain and come to the table with nothing but an entitled attitude and an inability to back their perspective.” Some of the questions on the test include a job candidate’s position and beliefs on America, guns, and police. Reyes said he’s not worried about discrimination lawsuits because he believes the test is really just the same kind of personality assessment that companies do routinely in job interviews. He says roughly 60-percent of applicants have not passed his test. Click here to see the whole “Snowflake Test”.
  • A Tulsa parent is speaking out after she says her daughter had a birth control implant embedded into her arm during a trip from school. >> Read more trending news  Miracle Foster says her parental rights were violated. It all started when her 16-year-old daughter attended a Youth Services of Tulsa lecture about sex education at Langston Hughes Academy. After one of the sessions, the teen and other girls reportedly said they wanted to learn more, and the school arranged for Youth Services of Tulsa to pick them up and take them to a clinic. Rodney L. Clark, the school's principal, says he called Foster to get permission to allow her daughter to go on the trip before they left. Foster says that her daughter then received a three-year Norplant implant at the clinic without her parental consent. Representatives from Youth Services of Tulsa say they do not have to tell a parent about any contraceptives given to minors. Title X federal guidelines allows for teens as young as 12 to receive various forms of contraceptives without a parent's consent. They also said they merely inform and transport teens to the clinics of their choice. They are not involved in the conversations between the teens and the physicians at theses clinics. Foster told FOX23 that she feels that she and her daughter should have had the opportunity to discuss what's best for her.  Clark released a statement Wednesday:  'This was not a field trip. Youth Services of Tulsa does an annual in-service on Sex Education. They offer students an opportunity to contact them on their own for more information. The parent gave her child permission to leave the school. Under Title X once young people are at the clinic and are of reproductive age, they can make decisions on their own without parental consent. As you can understand this situation involves a minor and we do not release information about students. Nevertheless, the student was well within their rights of Title X which is a federal guideline that provides reduced cost family planning services to persons of all reproductive age.
