    Tulsa officers never know what they are going to find when responding to a call. On Saturday, someone called about people with weapons near 31st and Sheridan. A police supervisor reports when the officers arrived at the scene, they found D.C. and Marvel comic book characters hanging out. Tulsa Police Department Facebook page: “We received a call today about multiple people carrying weapons in the 31st and Sheridan area. (actual call) Officers were dispatched to the area and we did find these nefarious characters. We were concerned about the DC characters, but the Marvel characters legitimized their superhero status.”

  • A 24-year-old is dead following a one-vehicle wreck in Muskogee County on Saturday. The scene happened on US64 at East 123rd Street South. In a release, Oklahoma Highway Patrol report David Roach passed a car. “Driver lost control of the vehicle, departed the roadway to the right, struck a stop sign, fence and rolled an unknown amount of times, ejecting the driver,” OHP said.  He was later pronounced dead at a Tulsa hospital.  There was nobody else inside the vehicle.   
  • We have updated information regarding a strong storm in Fairfax Saturday afternoon. National Weather Service Meteorologist Sarah Corfidi says they are looking into whether a tornado touched down. “We did receive reports that there was a tornado in that area,” Corfidi said.  “More than likely, someone from the National Weather Service team will go out on Sunday and look for damage and see where the damage was.  See if it’s consistent with a tornado or strong line winds.” The fast, strong storm that swept through Fairfax did leave damage in its path. One resident reacted to seeing a semi turned over by the strong winds. “Man, I’m just, wow!” She said.  “I couldn’t believe it.  I was just like, wow!” There have been no reports of any serious injuries. We do know a fence at a baseball diamond was heavily damaged and drivers had to dodge several fallen tree limbs.
  • A 54-year-old motorcyclist is dead following a single-vehicle crash in Tulsa County on Saturday. The wreck happened around 5:30 p.m. on White Water Park at Keystone Lake.

  • We told you recently about the same suspect who robbed two Walgreens pharmacies on Cinco De Mayo here in Tulsa. Now comes word he's not the only problem in this line of work. Tulsa robbery detectives say they have recently seen a rise in pharmacy robberies. “It’s early enough in the year,” a detective said.  “To have five already, concerns us.” Detectives add the last time they saw a rise in pill robberies was following some major heroine busts in town.

  • We have updated information regarding a 39-year-old woman accused of abducting her daughter after stabbing an 11-year-old child. Tulsa County court records show Taheerah Admad has now been charged with assault and battery with intent to kill, first-degree arson and two counts of child neglect. An Amber Alert was issued following the abduction. She was eventually spotted by members of the public and tracked down in a downtown parking lot. Original:  Tulsa police on Tuesday arrested a woman who they say bound and gagged her three daughters, stabbed the eldest repeatedly and set their house on fire. Police said a patrol officer found 39-year-old Taheerah Ahmad around midday in a vehicle in downtown Tulsa. Ahmad was taken into custody and her 7-year-old daughter who had been reported missing was found safe, police said. Investigators said that following her arrest, Ahmad told them she became upset after observing two of her children reading a book. It was not immediately known what book they were reading, police said. Ahmad was booked into the Tulsa County Jail on complaints of assault and battery with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, child abuse and first-degree arson. Tulsa police officer Jeanne MacKenzie said earlier that the 7-year-old girl helped her 9-year-old sister escape Monday night, and the 9-year-old ran to a nearby house for help. MacKenzie told the Tulsa World that when authorities arrived, they found an 11-year-old girl with so many stab wounds that emergency responders 'couldn't even count them.' The house was on fire, and Ahmad and the youngest girl were missing. The middle child told police that their mother placed socks in their mouths, bound their hands with duct tape and began stabbing the eldest child, MacKenzie said. The 11-year-old remained hospitalized Tuesday and police said she was unconscious and that her condition was 'very severe.
  • If you're headed out to one of the many events in Tulsa today, the forecast shouldn't be an issue.

As of early this morning, there is 30 percent of thunderstorms Saturday night.  The low will be around 67 degrees.     Temperatures will cool down on Sunday.  NWS is reporting a high near 85 degrees.
