Tulsa police have recovered a missing vehicle in connection with the shooting deaths of two people inside a home last week.
Police received a tip that the 2006 blue Saturn Vue that was believed to be stolen had been burned in north Tulsa, Sgt. David Walker said.
It was found burned in the 7700 block of North Cincinnati Avenue, Walker said.
The investigation determined that the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office towed the SUV from Turley, Walker said.
The vehicle belonged to 19-year-old Phoenicia Dorsey, Walker said.
Dorsey and Deyonta Dunn, 20, were shot in a home in the 6900 block of East Newton Street about midnight Thursday, police said.
Both victims were seen in the vehicle on Halloween night at various locations throughout the city prior to their deaths, Walker said.
Although a motive for the shootings is still unknown, police have not ruled out robbery being a contributing factor, he said.
Investigators also are exploring the possibility that Dunn was targeted by the assailants.
“He had a lot of enemies,” Walker said.
Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS (2677).
