A man investigators sought in connection with the shooting deaths of two people this week is no longer considered a person of interest, Tulsa police said Saturday evening.
Police had been looking to question 21-year-old Adrian Sample in deaths of Phoenicia Dorsey, 19, and Deyonta Dunn, 20, although he was not ruled a suspect.
Sample turned himself in Saturday evening for questioning "after seeing himself in the media," Sgt David Walker said.
"Tulsa police have interviewed him and he is no longer a person of interest in this case," Walker said.
Dorsey and Dunn were shot inside a home in the 6900 block of East Newton Street just after midnight Thursday.
Police are still searching for a 2006 blue Saturn Vue with an Oklahoma license plate of 199FRP belonging to Dorsey that is believed to be stolen, Walker said.
Both victims were seen in the vehicle on Halloween night at various locations throughout the city prior to their deaths, he said.
The vehicle is described as featuring damage to the right front and passenger side, police said.
Anyone with information about the shooting or the whereabouts of the vehicle is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS.
