The Tulsa (OK) Police Department arrested a 16-year-old after a string of violent crimes on Sunday.
Deonte Green shot and killed a father in front of his wife and kids Sunday afternoon during an attempted robbery.
At about 11:20 p.m., police say Green robbed a couple sitting in their car in the parking lot of Incredible Pizza in the 8300 block of East 71st Street and that is where police captured him.
Police say it all started Sunday morning, when officers were called to an armed robbery in the 6500 block of East 71st Street.
Police say Green kidnapped an elderly couple from their home and forced them to drive to an ATM and withdraw cash. He then forced the couple back to their home where he raped the elderly woman.
Green then ran off where he killed the 44 year old husband and father as they were leaving their home.
Green was arrested and interviewed and then booked into the Tulsa County jail on complaints including murder, armed robbery and sexual assault.
This crime is outrageous but oddly, this type of crime will not garner the headlines or cause demonstrations. Law Officer has previously pointed this out in an article called The Missing Outrage which dealt with another evil crime in Tulsa.
