Man killed, family member injured in north Tulsa shooting

A man was killed and his family member was critically injured in a shooting in north Tulsa late Friday. 

Police officers responded to calls that shots had been heard in the area of 2900 N. New Haven Ave. about 11:15 p.m. and found evidence of a crime scene. They were also notified that two gunshot victims had been dropped off at a hospital, Homicide Unit Lt. Brandon Watkins said. 

One victim, identified Monday as 24-year-old Donavan Wimberly, died while being taken to another hospital. One of his family members remained hospitalized in critical condition, Watkins said. 

No arrests had been made, but detectives don't think the shootings were domestic-related or that the two shot each other, Watkins said. 

Anyone with information about the shootings is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS (2677), or through the Tulsa Tips app, which can be downloaded from the Google Play or iTunes stores.

Tipsters may remain anonymous, and cash rewards are paid for information leading to arrests.
