TULSA, Okla. — The Tulsa Police Department issued a warrant for a man named Todd Hibner, believed to be connected to the murder of a man near 11th and Garnett.

On April 14, officers found David Drywater dead from a gunshot wound by his tent. TPD said at first, it was unclear if it was a suicide or a homicide.

The Medical Examiner determined it was a homicide, and detectives began investigating it as such.

No firearm or cartridge casing was found in the area, according to court documents.

After interviewing witnesses in the area, investigators believe the shooting came after Hibner thought Drywater broke his gun.

One witness told police the day before Drywater was killed, Hibner told him, "I'm going to kill that m***********."

On April 17, a first-degree murder warrant was issued for Todd Hibner.

Police found and arrested Hibner later that evening.

This is the 17th homicide in Tulsa in 2024.
