One killed in east Tulsa shooting; police searching for suspect

Homicide detectives examine a car that crashed into an east Tulsa apartment building Thursday afternoon.

One man was dead and another was on the run Thursday evening after a shooting at an east Tulsa apartment complex.

Tulsa police identified the victim as Jeremiah Goleman, 28, and said the suspect was at large and considered armed and dangerous as of Thursday evening.

Officers were called to the MeadowBrook Apartments in the 300 block of South Mingo Road about 2:30 p.m. in reference to shots fired and a car crashing into a building, Tulsa Police Sgt. Joel Ward said.

“Officers got here really quick, found one person deceased up on a second-story balcony, and we learned that we had at least one suspect on the run,” Ward said.

Police set a perimeter around the area and brought in a couple of search dogs, briskly walking along the nearby Mingo Trail for a time. Goleman had reportedly fled from the wrecked car and got to the balcony before collapsing with a gunshot wound to the upper torso.

The suspect, reportedly a black male wearing black and white clothing, also fled from the wrecked vehicle southbound on foot.

Witnesses also reported hearing the car crash before they heard gunshots, Ward said, so officers were thinking the victim and suspect might have been in the car together before it nosed into the building.

“It’s a concern for the public,” Ward said. “We don’t know what the cause of the shooting was but there’s evidence that it was pretty violent, so that guy’s a violent person who needs to be caught.”

Anyone with information on the crime 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 the arrest of persons committing crimes.
