Motel Murder

Tulsa, OK – 2 killed, woman hurt in Tulsa hotel shooting

TULSA, Okla. (AP) Tulsa police have identified two people who were killed during a triple shooting inside a hotel room in east-central Tulsa.

Officer Jason Willingham says 23-year-old Joey Deon Mike and 19-year-old Jermiko Thomas were found shot to death Thursday night. Willingham says a woman who also was shot is "clinging to life" at a Tulsa hospital.

Officers were called to the Days Inn hotel about 10:30 p.m. Thursday and found the three victims.

Willingham says a bullet struck a water pipe during the shooting and flooded the room, complicating the investigation.

Investigators still had not determined on Friday a motive or a suspect in the shooting.
