Homicide detectives have recovered a pickup they believe may have been used by the suspect in a shooting Tuesday.
Lucas Knight, 25, was shot at the Motel 6 at 1010 N. Garnett Road at 12:38 a.m. Tuesday, police said.
An anonymous caller contacted police after hearing a gunshot and then a man say “I’m going to die,” the Tulsa World previously reported.
Knight was taken by private car to Hillcrest Medical Center, where he was admitted in critical condition. Knight's condition has since improved, said Sgt. Dave Walker.
Investigators later named Donald Hallett, 44, as a suspect in the shooting. Hallett is a white male, 6 feet tall and weighs about 200 pounds, police said. He has brown hair.
Officers found Hallett’s 2008 Chevrolet Colorado pickup abandoned in the parking lot of an apartment complex at 117 E. 17th St. around 8 p.m. Wednesday, Walker said.
Anyone with more information about Hallett’s whereabouts is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS (2677), online at tulsaworld.com/crimestoppers or via text message at CRIMES (274637). Text tips should begin with “Tip918.” Tipsters can remain anonymous and may earn a reward.
