Wanted by Tulsa Police Department
A man wanted on a Tulsa County murder charge was not found early Wednesday in northwest Oklahoma City after law officers surounded a house for more than nine hours, police said.
A police tactical team with a bomb squad surrounded a home at 3009 Pioneer Avenue near NW 27 and N Brookline Avenue late Thursday. Officers arrived at the house to try to serve an arrest warrant about 11:30 p.m. Tuesday, reports police Master Sgt. Gary Knight. The man was not found, police reported about 8:30 a.m.
Police had said they were not certain the man was inside the home early Wednesday, according to reports.
The man was reportedly wanted in connection with a Tulsa homicide.
Oklahoma Supreme Court Network records show William Ty Angelo Proctor, 21, of Oklahoma City, was charged Tuesday with first-degree murder in Tulsa County. Proctor's address is listed as 3009 Pioneer Avenue in Oklahoma City.
Proctor was charged in connection with the Oct. 1, 2013 shooting death of Kendall Eugene Austin, 23, who was fatally shot in the 5000 block of S 36 W Avenue in Tulsa.
"He's a murder suspect, so that's someone we're going to consider a danger person. That's why we go to these lengths to try to end this safely," Knight told reporters at the scene.
