White Oklahoma Homeowner Shoots Black Teen He Thought Was Shooting at Police – He Was Wrong

Updated: Aug 8, 2019

A white Tulsa homeowner was accused Wednesday of shooting and intending to kill a teen accused of stealing $12 in one armed robbery and running from police in a second.



Zachariah Cook told police he heard shots fired at officers, so he retrieved his gun and shot at least twice at a teen who had hopped his backyard fence, according to a probable cause affidavit Tulsa World obtained.


However, there have been no reports of police or suspect gunshots in the incident, Tulsa World reported.
