One man was shot during a dispute at a northeast Tulsa apartment complex.

According to Tulsa Police, officers were called out to a shots fired call at McKinley Apartments near Sheridan and Pine around 3:45 p.m.

The incident took place after two men were in some sort of a dispute over a necklace, according to police.

21-year-old Charles Johnson was shot once in the chest and transported to a Tulsa hospital by friends. Johnson later died at the hospital.

In a TPD news release, investigators learned that 42-year-old Randle Lockett was the suspected shooter. Homicide detectives and the Northern Oklahoma Violent Crime Task Force made contact with Lockett over the phone.

Around 9 p.m., Lockett called detectives and surrendered. Lockett was booked into Tulsa County Jail and is being held for first degree murder.

Further investigation showed that another male described as 40-years-old with dreadlocks was driven to McKinley Apartments with Locket by a female. Investigators interviewed and released the female driver, however police are still searching for the other man in the vehicle.

A “petty argument” over a necklace Saturday afternoon escalated into gunfire at the complex located in the 6600 block of East Latimer Place, according to police.

Murder/Suicide – Killed – Anitra R. Williams (Eden Prairie, MN)

Anitra R. Williams

When police entered the Eden Prairie apartment of Anitra and Derrick Williams, they found a heartbreaking sight — the couple were dead and their 16-month-old daughter was sitting next to her mother’s body.

It’s not known if the little girl was in the room during the murder-suicide, said Anessa Brittain, Anitra’s sister.

Eden Prairie Police have released the identities of two people who died after a shooting was reported Sept. 21 at Eden Place Apartments.

The individuals are identified by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner as Eden Prairie residents Anitra Rochelle Williams, 26, and Derrick Antoine Williams, 29. They were married, according to a city news release.

Anitra Williams was the victim of a homicide and Derrick Williams took his own life, the release said.
“Police records indicate one prior contact with Anitra and Derrick Williams, on a report of a verbal domestic dispute in October 2009,” according to the release. “Police are not seeking any suspects in this case; the incident is being investigated as a homicide-suicide. Because this is an ongoing investigation, no further details are available at this time.”

Anitra Williams was found dead late Saturday morning, Sept. 21, and police confirmed that Derrick Williams was later found dead inside the building in the 8600 block of Magnolia Trail, according to previous reports.

Police received a 911 call reporting possible gunshots at 7:12 a.m. Saturday. Police responded and attempted to make contact with the occupants of one apartment unit. As a precaution, all other residents of the building were evacuated. The building has about 64 units.
