TULSA, Okla. - Tulsa Police are looking for two men wanted in connection to a murder at a north Tulsa home early Monday morning. Police said the suspects are believed to be from out of town visiting Tulsa.

According to detectives, a man in his early 20s was shot in the face at a home in the 5900 block of East Marshall Street in around 1:30 a.m.

Officers found multiple shell casings inside and outside of the home. They were also investigating a black SUV parked on the driveway to see if it relates to the shooting.

When officers arrived, they also found a woman inside the home where the victim was shot. Investigators from the detective division took her in for questioning.

The witness told officers that the shooter and the victim had an argument, which led to the shooting. At this time, investigators believe the woman's account of what happened isn't matching the evidence found.

On Monday afternoon, Tulsa Police released information that they believe the shooter is Jose Ibarra Pelligin. TPD found a birth certificate at the scene and a forged Arizona ID card with the name Eddie Gaspar. 

Police say that an argument led to the shooting and someone drove away with the suspect in a light-colored sedan. 

Police continue to search for witnesses.
