    Shots were fired along North Garrison near the Gilcrease Expressway on Tuesday morning.

    The victim who was killed has been identified at 27-year-old Jeremy Woodfork.

    "Not so surprising," says Paul Jordan, who lives near by. "From in my house, I hear gunshots in my house every day."

    Even so, today was a little different.

    This time, after the gunshots, there was a crash.

    "When I came out, I saw my neighbor's car two houses down from me," said Jordan.

    Jordan ran to the car as he called 911.

    "I was on 911 twice, and I was on hold both times," said Jordan. Hope faded when he opened the door.

    "The blood was pooling in the seat underneath him," said Jordan.

    Police say it was a drive-by shooting, possibly gang related.

    All Jordan knows is he just watched Woodfork die.

    "He gurgled, and took a deep breath, and that's when, I think, he was gone," said Jordan.

    Sergeant Dave Walker with Tulsa Police Homicide said a car drove up next to the victim's car this morning. He says the passenger did the rest.

    "Leaned out and fired multiple rounds into the vehicle," said Walker.

    Jordan owns a four-bedroom rental home near where this all happened. He has an idea for a new tenant that could help with crime in the area.

    "I want to put a police officer in here with a police cruiser presence," said Jordan.

    He said he'll even throw in a big discount on rent, should a police officer take interest.

    Police say they are working to get a good description of the suspect's vehicle. The victim and suspect likely knew each other, according to police.
