Tulsa, Oklahoma — More than 160 bullets were fired at two different crime scenes in Tulsa this weekend.
“These individuals don’t care where they are, where they are, and where they are shooting,” says Tulsa Police Chief Wendell Franklin. “This is a gang war going on.”
Emir Franklin is becoming a reality about gun violence in our city. He wants Tarsan to stand up and pay attention.
“These two rival gangs come across at the crossroads, and it’s possible they’re trying to shoot it there,” says Chief Franklin. “If you get caught in a bonfire, you may be the unintended victim.”
Franklin expressed frustration in a recent tweet by saying:
More than 100 bullets were fired in the city’s latest murder on Saturday night. More than 60 bullets were fired at the shooting site last night. Certainly protesters are organizing against such violence!Without being in the limelight with many fanfares @TulsaPolice I’ve been working on the problem.

Next, Emir Franklin asks, “If this happened elsewhere in the city, for example on the 21st and in Utica, would this be a headline?”
He says many of these shootings are already happening in areas vulnerable to violence.
“Tulsa, this is your city, this is our city, something may be happening in some parts of the city, but at some point you could be a victim of this A violent crime that wants people to understand that it is no exaggeration to say. “
To hit the surge in crime-Chief Franklin says they combine the resources of multiple units.
“What we are doing now is summarizing our crime gun unit, strategic enforcement unit, three street crime units from three uniform departments, and a murder detective handling possible murders. That’s it. “
Another thing Franklin says we have to look at is how we prosecute these types of cases.
He states that he can file a proceeding against a person who has a gun that should not have a gun, but is still considered a non-violent crime. The incident is then expelled and the person returns to the street again.
