Man wanted in shooting incident arrested by Tulsa authorities Monday

TULSA - A Tulsa man was arrested Monday; he was involved in a shooting incident in late May.

Quayshon King was arrested by the Tulsa Fugitive Warrants group at 8115 E. 60th St. Operatives had been searching for King, who was wanted for firearms and gang related offenses.

At 11:30 pm on May 28, Leran Pittman and King got into an altercation at apartments located at 7600 E.  21 Street. King and Pittman have children with the same woman. The two ex-convicts were discussing their disagreements when shooting broke out.

Police say it is unclear who shot first, but as seen on video, it was clear Pittman rammed his vehicle into the sedan driven by King. The two got out of their disabled vehicles and began shooting at each other. Pittman was hit in the foot and King was able to get away without injury.

One woman, smoking a cigarette on the landing in front of her apartment, was hit by stray gunfire and had to seek treatment at a local hospital. 

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Pittman can call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS,
