What.the....

EFF?!  The following is an excerpt from our local newspaper’s website:

 

Tulsa police have blocked off the area around 21st Street and Yale Avenue because of a shooting at Walmart Neighborhood Market.

Initial reports indicate that shots were fired at officers, Officer Leland Ashley said.

EMSA ambulance service supervisor Chris Stevens said that one man was pronounced dead on the scene.

Another ambulance remains on the scene, he said.

According to officers, the shooter fled the area at 12:35 p.m. Police said a suspect is in custody, found at 23rd Street and Yale.

Traffic in the entire area is shut down, police said.

A man inside the store said he was in the back of Walmart when he started hearing gunshots and everyone fled to an exit and ran. He said that he heard at least 15 shots.

-----------------------------------

Please note that we live TWO BLOCKS blocks from where they found this guy.  This is the grocery store we go to multiple times per week, you don’t even leave the neighborhood to get to it.

For real, we do NOT live in the ghetto.  Although you wouldn’t know it from the amount of crime we have seen over the past year or so.

Thank you GOD for giving us the opportunity to move in less than a week.
