A man was shot to death at a Tulsa apartment complex Monday night, police said.
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, Capt. Shawn King said.
Officers were searching late Monday for Pernell Jefferson, 37.
Police said 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.
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 Comanche Park resident and who had been banned from the complex previously, got into an altercation before England was shot, King said.
Several witnesses told police that Jefferson was the shooter, King said.
Jefferson is described as black, about 5 feet 10 inches tall and about 165 pounds. He was wearing a light-blue plaid shirt, police said.
Anyone with information regarding his whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 596-COPS or send a text message or an online tip to the Police Department at
