TULSA — Authorities are investigating after a man was shot and killed outside a Tulsa motel.
The Tulsa World reported that witnesses said they heard gunfire Sunday evening before the man's body was recovered outside the Tonight Inn & Suites in east Tulsa.
Authorities didn't immediately identify the victim.
Tulsa Police Officer Con Ericsson said witnesses reported seeing a man in a green hoodie run from the front of the motel after hearing multiple gunshots. But, Ericsson said, police couldn't be sure the man seen fleeing after the shooting was a suspect. Ericsson says the man could have been a frightened witness.
The World says the death is the city's 54th homicide in 2013.
