1 killed in shooting after argument near garage sale

TULSA, Okla. — One man is dead and another is in custody after a shooting in Tulsa Saturday morning.

Tulsa police said they were called to a shooting scene in a neighborhood near Pine and Yale at about 10:30am.

According to Tulsa police, officers arrived to find a man providing first aid to the victim. Turns out, the man assisting the victim is the same person who shot him, according to TPD.

In a social media post, Tulsa police said the two men were arguing across the street from one another near where a garage sale was underway. Officers said when the victim turned away, the suspect shot him in the back.

TPD said the suspect, Rodney Hunter, took his pistol back inside his house and then returned to assist the victim. Police said the victim, Ray Orcutt, died at the hospital a short time later.

The Tulsa Police Department said Hunter falls under the McGirt ruling, so he will either be prosecuted in Tribal Court or Federal Court.

This case is Tulsa’s 27th homicide of 2024.
