Three suspects in the first Tulsa homicide investigation of 2016 have turned themselves into authorities this week.

Tulsa police say 19-year-old Kyle Stapleton was shot in the chest during an altercation at Cobblestone Apartments Sunday night.

Stapleton was taken to Saint Francis Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Detectives say Boyd Evans, Jeremy Sykes and Devan Mitchell were inside the apartment with the teen at the time of the murder. They believe the incident could have stemmed from drugs; there was evidence marijuana was being sold from the apartment.

Mitchell, Sykes and Evans are now in custody after turning themselves in.
