Followup OK: Shooting may have been Self Defense
An August shooting that left a man dead on a north Tulsa street might have been an act of self-defense, according to Tulsa police.
Thomas Anthony Reed, 20, was found dead in the 2000 block of North Harvard Avenue, near Ute Street, after being shot just after 8:30 p.m. Aug. 28, Homicide Sgt. Dave Walker said.
Police at the time said Reed and another man had been walking from opposite directions when they met, a confrontation ensued and shots rang out. Reed was shot twice before walking across the street and back again, collapsing near the side of the road.
Shell casings and a revolver were found at the scene, so police said at least two guns possibly had been used. A revolver does not discharge shell casings.
