A Tulsa man is now facing a slew of charges including five counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and possession of an explosive without a permit following a drive-by shooting.

Tulsa police say five people identified 20-year-old Marco Ignacio Callejas Gaytan as the man who shot at them Sunday morning near East 21st Street and South Memorial Drive. None of the victims were hurt.

During his arrest, officers say they also found drugs, cash, a digital scale, and a grinder in his vehicle.

After arresting Callejas Gaytan, police conducted a search warrant at his home in the same area where the shooting happened. They say they recovered a non-lethal explosive flash bang and a pair of night vision goggles.

According to an arrest report, the flash bang device was previously reported stolen from two FBI agents’ unmarked unit in Bixby. Police say Callejas Gaytan purchased the items from another man and knew the items were stolen. They say Callejas Gaytan does not have a valid permit for the explosive.

During the search warrant, officers say Callejas Gaytan’s brother told them that Callejas Gaytan put three firearms in his vehicle. TPD reported recovering an AR-15, an AK-47 and a semi-automatic firearm.

Callejas Gaytan is now facing five counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, two counts of stolen property, possession of an explosive without a permit, two drug possession charges and four firearm possession charges. His bond is set at $124,250.
