TULSA – The family of a man who was reported by Tulsa police as the city’s 58th homicide say they saw the fatal shooting take place.

This week the Tulsa County District Attorney’s office filed an arrest warrant for Joe Johnson, 20, for first degree murder in the fatal shooting of 25-year-old Quavis Cato in midtown this week.

Family members told 2 Works for You that Karen, Cato’s fiancée, Ashley Porter, and her sister witnessed Johnson allegedly shoot and kill Cato outside his home on Monday.

According to police, the shooting was the result of an argument between Johnson and Cato about a car.

Family members say Johnson shot Cato around 12 times, with two different guns. Tulsa police officers say Johnson sped off in a red Chevy Tahoe with an Oklahoma license plate: 660PDS.

Porter says they believe Johnson fled to Louisiana and they’re hoping that he will be found soon.

“I can’t eat, I can’t sleep. I just keep seeing it over and over again in my head how he shot him. He didn’t deserve to die like this,” said Porter.

Tulsa police say Johnson is described as a black male, 5-feet-10 and around 200 pounds.

Those with information pertaining to Johnson’s whereabouts are encouraged to call police.
