Local News

    There is damage after a hit and run driver runs away from the scene of an accident. We're told that around 11:30 p.m. Monday, a red pickup hit a vehicle parked on the street near 7400 East 30, then ran into a car parked in a driveway and hit a patio cover at another house. No one saw the accident. Neighbors heard the crashes and came out to see someone still trying to drive away. The driver eventually fled on foot. The truck cab contained paperwork with the same location as the registration address of the vehicle’s owner. A neighbor tried to follow the suspect on foot, but lost him. The registered address is only a couple of miles away. Police made an arrest early this morning.
  • Tulsa police are investigating a shooting. We're told someone shot the man in the leg while he was driving near 21st and Memorial Sunday. The victim drove to near 41st and Sheridan before he called investigators and was taken to the hospital. Police say the victim's story has changed and they believe he knew the suspect.
  • Jenks police are investigating after a man is found shot near a Jenks school. We're told officers found the victim Sunday on the train tracks near Birch and F Street near the high school. The victim died at the hospital. He had a gunshot wound and police are investigating the shooting as a homicide. A suspect has not been identified.
  • It's not very often you hear about police officers and firefighters involved in a fight being a good thing. However, that's exactly what happened Saturday night at the BOK Center. Dustin Flutcher, president of 918 Fully Involved, says firefighters and officers participated in mixed martial arts matches to raise money for charity. “This is our fifth event,” Flutcher said.  “In the past four years we have donated over $130,000 to these charities and organizations.”   The raised money will go to Special Olympics of Oklahoma and Firefighters Burn Camp.  No word on how much was raised Saturday night.  
  • KRMG has learned one person was injured Saturday night in a shooting near Maxwell Park. The incident happened around 8:30 p.m. Tulsa investigators at the scene report the victim was in a parked van with three other occupants when a person in a dark-colored, Honda-like vehicle fired multiple shots at them. The van's driver took off in a hurry.  Police say the victim didn't know he was hit until they stopped near East Independence Street and North Quebec Avenue. There was reportedly two people inside the suspect's vehicle.  So far, no arrests have been made. Anyone with information regarding the shooting is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS.  
  • An armed robbery suspect was taken into custody recently thanks to our partners at FOX23 NEWS. Earlier this week, FOX23 News showed surveillance video of the April 13th robbery at the Super Stop near 46th Street North and MLK. Soon after, Tulsa robbery detectives tell us they started receiving tips from the public. Michael Herron was arrested because of those tips on Friday.   He was staying in the same area where the robbery occurred. Herron has been booked into the Tulsa County Jail.  
  • A 14-year-old girl was transported in serious condition on Saturday following a stabbing in Owasso. The scene happened near 103rd and 92nd Street North. Officers at the scene report the victim and another juvenile female were fighting.  During this time, a knife was introduced into the equation. The victim was stabbed multiple times.  Her name hasn’t been released.   KRMG's told the suspect fled the scene. No word if that person has been found and arrested.
  • We're learning more about what caused around 50 homes to be without water on Saturday in Claremore. Police at the scene report a woman fell asleep at the wheel and crashed into a fire hydrant near Blue Starr Drive and North Chambers.  This caused water to come shooting out.   The unidentified woman was ticketed for inattentive driving. She also received a ticket for eluding because she went to a nearby friend's home along with her passenger to call police. Officers report she shouldn't have left the scene of the crash.
  • A sad story to report out of McCurtain County. In a press release, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol report two girls, ages 11 and 16, were killed in a crash Friday night near Broken Bow. The collision happened around 10:20 p.m. on US259. “Vehicle 1 (containing the victims) was northbound on US259,” OHP press release said.  “Vehicle 1 was attempting to turn left into a private drive. Vehicle 2 was southbound, and struck Vehicle 1 while it was attempting the turn.” Troopers add the driver of the second vehicle did have an odor of alcohol on him.  Both girls are from Tulsa.  Their names haven’t been released.   
  • KRMG has learned four people were taken into custody late Friday night following a pursuit. A Tulsa police supervisor reports the suspects were in a stolen vehicle near 15th and Lewis.  When they didn't stop for officers, a chase ensued until they reached the area of East 11th and South Harvard. From there, the four people tried their luck on foot.  The second chase didn’t last very long.  All four suspects  were eventually tacked down. One suspect needed medical treatment after receiving a dog bite.
  • A 14-year-old girl was transported in serious condition on Saturday following a stabbing in Owasso. The scene happened near 103rd and 92nd Street North.

  • A lot like Saturday, the forecast could ruin your outdoor plans in Tulsa today. National Weather Service Meteorologist Brad McGavick says conditions will be wet and cooler than normal. “We’re still expecting a pretty good chance of showers around during the day” McGavick said.  “The bigger story will probably be the continued cool conditions.” NWS is reporting the high will only reach around 60 degrees.  For reference, the normal high for this time of year in Tulsa is 73 degrees.   The rain is expected to stop Sunday night and we’ll mainly see cloudy skies.  Temperatures will drop to a low close to 51 degrees.  
  • It was a busy and emotional day on Friday in the courtroom during the Michael Bever trial. The 911 call was played and jurors heard from the surviving sister. Tulsa County District Attorney Steve Kunzweiler says the sister was able to testify from a separate courtroom and the jurors heard the testimony through a television. “I was very grateful to the court for the arrangements she had made to try and it make it easier on this young lady,” Kunzweiler said.  “I’m just glad that she’s been able to get through it.” During her testimony, Michael was seen crying on several occasions and putting his hands over his face. KRMG will continue to update the story as more information comes into the newsroom.  
  • If you have outdoor plans for today, bring an umbrella and be prepared to get wet. National Weather Service Meteorologist Brad McGavick says we'll see plenty of rain in Tulsa. “We’re expecting widespread showers, isolated thunderstorms,” McGavick said.  “The chance of rain is 100 percent.” It’s also going to be cooler than normal.  NWS is reporting the high will only reach around 57 degrees.   For reference, the normal high for this time of year in Tulsa is closer to 73 degrees.   Keep that umbrella handy Saturday night as well.  There is an 80 percent chance for rain and the low will be near 49 degrees.
