Update: Tulsa Police have named the woman who was fatally shot at Waterside Apartments on Wednesday as 61-year-old Myrna Daniels.

Original Report:

Following a shooting at a west Tulsa apartment complex, one individual has passed away and a nearby school was placed on lockdown.

Subsequently, a prolonged standoff unfolded, during which police apprehended Brent Austin Dean, the alleged perpetrator of the shooting.

Dean was later taken into custody and booked into Tulsa County jail without bond on charges including two counts of pointing a deadly weapon, shooting with intent to kill, and first-degree murder.

At approximately 7:30 a.m. on Wednesday, police received numerous reports of a shooting at an apartment complex close to 17th and Southwest Boulevard.

Upon arrival, officers discovered a female victim of the shooting inside an apartment. She was promptly transported to the hospital, but unfortunately succumbed to her injuries.

Police have stated that the victim’s identity will be disclosed once all of her relatives have been informed.

Police reported that the suspect refused to exit the apartment, resulting in a prolonged standoff lasting several hours.

Tulsa Police Captain Richard Meulenberg stated, “Patrol officers were present. We surrounded the area and began issuing verbal commands via the PA system. We communicated with him over the phone several times, but he refused to come out.”

The intense situation prompted Eugene Field Elementary, a nearby school, to implement a lockdown.

Tulsa Public Schools lifted the lockdown once the suspect was apprehended.
