TULSA -- Police have identified a man killed during a shooting at a west Tulsa apartment complex Sunday.

A woman was also found shot and transported to the hospital. Authorities say the woman is expected to be okay.

Investigators are still trying to piece together what happed, but say a disturbance between the people living at at the apartment is what led to the shooting.

A resident at the complex says knowing the type of crime happening near her home makes her fearful  for her life.

“It’s bad, we shouldn’t have to live in fear, even though it’s housing I know you shouldn’t expect the best of the best living out here, but you shouldn’t have to live in fear either," says Tayler White.

No arrests have been made at this time. This is Tulsa's first homicide of 2017.

Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS.
