A man in Tulsa is facing accusations of brandishing a gun at a security guard at a local business overnight, according to police reports. The incident occurred at the B&S Muffler shop near 26th and Sheridan. The security guard contacted the police after the man allegedly pulled out a gun and started shooting at him while he was seated in his vehicle in the parking lot.

The security guard managed to drive away unharmed, despite the suspect firing several shots at him. When the police arrived at the scene, they spotted a man matching the suspect’s description fleeing in an alley. Officers were able to apprehend the suspect at a nearby apartment complex. While shell casings and a magazine were recovered at the site, a gun was not initially found.

In the pursuit of locating the weapon, the fire department assisted by providing a ladder to search nearby rooftops. Eventually, the gun was discovered. The suspect, who appeared to be under the influence of drugs, was taken to the hospital for evaluation before being transported to jail. Authorities have not disclosed the suspect’s identity, but revealed that he is a member of the Creek Nation and was wanted by US Marshalls from Texas. He is currently being held at the Tulsa County Jail.
