Police investigating north Tulsa motel shooting; possible victim turns up at local hospital

TULSA - Police are searching for the suspect in an overnight shooting at a north Tulsa motel.

Sergeant Dave Walker says a 911 call was made around 12:30 a.m. about gunshots at Motel 6 on Garnett, just north of I-244.

Witnesses told police they heard a gunshot from one of the rooms, then saw a dark pickup truck fleeing the  parking lot at a high rate of speed.

Walker says minutes later a dark pickup truck dropped off a person who had been shot at a local hospital, then left without waiting for police to arrive.

Walker says the patient dropped off at the hospital is the same person who was shot at the motel.

Police are now searching for Donald Hallett, 44, who police believe is the shooting suspect.

Hallett is described as a white male, 6 feet tall and 200 pounds with brown hair.  He's driving a 2008 Chevrolet Colorado truck with Oklahoma license tag 847-HLS.

Police believe Hallett is in the possession of a Glock handgun and should be considered armed and dangerous.

The victim, identified as 25-year-old Lucas Knight, is in stable condition.

Police are still investigating the reason for the shooting and have not ruled out that it was an accident.

Anyone with information about the shooting can call Crime Stoppers at (918) 596-COPS.
