TULSA - Two teens driving an SUV Tuesday evening were shot after an argument between another car escalated, leaving one dead. 

Tulsa police say a 17-year-old Daniel Carter and a 16-year-old woman were driving down East Virgin Street when they encountered another vehicle at a stop sign. The driver of the SUV honked his horn and both people in the other vehicle got out of their car and started shooting.

Neighbors in the area say they were quite shaken by the incident.

"It's pretty scary because I have kids, I have grandkids, and you know, for their sake of being outside and parked right across the street and things they want to do, you have to keep them congested into the house because they want to come out and enjoy the recreation of the parks, and they can't do that."

Carter died of a shot to the chest and the woman was shot in the back.

She was taken to the hospital by a neighbor.

The shooter is described as a black male, ages 28 to 30-years-old, wearing a red shirt and dark pants.
