TULSA - Residents living at a south Tulsa apartment complex say they're tired of the violence circling their community.
On Saturday, Tulsa police were called to Fairmont Terrace apartments near 61st and South Peoria Avenue around 11 p.m. and found 24-year-old Quincy Jones fatally shot.
Four hours later police were called back to the same complex after residents reported a 17-year-old had been shot.
Police say the 17-year-old victim was a witness to the first shooting and was shot multiple times.
Stacey Jones, a resident of Fairmont Terrace apartments, says she is gearing up for more retaliation shootings following the two shootings overnight.
"The way the crime rate is around here and the retaliation it’s going to be some more going on," Jones said.
Another resident KuaLauni Lewis says the apartment complex tends to draw a bad crowd, but she added that the victim of the first shooting kept to himself.
"He seemed like a laid back person I never really met him," Lewis said. "But I know people that know him, he speaks when I speak but otherwise it’s terrible that he’s gone."
Larry McGee, a resident who has lived in the area for about seven years, said he was shocked to hear about the shootings but described the area as a "rough neighborhood."
McGee hopes people will be motivated to report crimes to police.
"Stand as a force," he said. "I'm not easily intimidated myself, I'd tell what I know."
Police ask anyone with information on the shootings call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-2677.
