A man was shot to death at a Tulsa apartment complex Monday night.
The victim, Carl England, was shot in the chest and was pronounced dead about 10:30 p.m. after being taken by ambulance to a hospital, Tulsa Police Capt. Shawn King said.
Police were searching for Pernell Jefferson, 37, Monday night.
The shooting occurred about 9:30 p.m. at the Comanche Park apartments, a Tulsa Housing Authority complex in the 3600 block of North Quaker Avenue, police said.
England’s daughter, who lives at Comanche Park, had been in a fight with some people earlier, and her father went to the complex to help her, King said. He was not a resident of the complex, King said.
England and Jefferson, who also is not a resident and had been banned from the complex previously, got into an altercation before England was shot, King said, adding that police were not immediately sure whether the shooting could have been in self defense.
Several witnesses told police that Jefferson was the shooter, King said.
Jefferson is described as black, about 5-foot-10-inches tall and about 165 pounds. He was wearing a light blue plaid shirt, police said.
