TULSA - The record number of homicides in Tulsa for 2016 jumped to 73 on Friday morning when 37-year-old Leon Crockett died around 5 a.m. after being shot on Nov. 19 in North Tulsa, according to police reports.

Tulsa Police say they responded to a call at 1339 E. 36th St. No. on that date where a woman said she had shot an intruder.
