Suspect, victim identified in deadly east Tulsa shooting
TULSA, Okla. (KTUL) —
Police have released the names of the suspect and victim in a deadly east Tulsa shooting.
Officers responded just after 6:30 p.m. to a home near 36th Street and South 145th East Avenue after a woman called police and told them about a shooting. Police say they found 40-year-old Michael Lewis, who lives at the home with his two children, dead in the living room of the house.
Police say Phazon Scott, the grandson of the caller and the half-brother of the two children, showed up at the house and got into an argument with the victim.

Scott returned to the scene around 9:45 p.m. and surrendered, police say. He will face a first-degree murder charge.
The driver of the pickup, 20-year-old Jack Gutierrez, was arrested on outstanding traffic warrants, according to police.
