Suspect shot and killed by TPD

Tulsa police say officers fatally shot a robbery suspect after he didn’t comply with officers’ commands and pulled a pistol from his waistband. Police say the shooting happened Friday after officers tracked the man suspected of robbing someone outside a check cashing business to a nearby neighborhood.

The suspect was taken to a hospital, where he died early Saturday. Police didn’t immediately release the suspect’s name.

Per policy, the three officers involved in the shooting were placed on administrative leave.
