Tulsa police have identified the victim that was shot and killed in a deadly home invasion Monday near 51st and Sheridan.

Sgt. Dave Walker said the victim was 80-year-old James Rosenlieb.

Police said Rosenlieb was shot in his living room after struggling with a suspect who had broken inside his home. The victim's wife was inside the house at the time, but she wasn't injured.

Police said they believe the intruder did not act alone and someone out there knows something.

Sgt. Walker says the other person involved has one opportunity to come forward.

Detectives said this homicide has a similar likeness to a homicide that happened back in October in south Tulsa.
