One person is killed when a Tulsa police officer and a sheriff's deputy shot two people. It took place early this morning.  The officers  opened fire on a vehicle as it sped toward them. The occupants of the car were  apparently fleeing a robbery.

Tulsa Police Officer Leland Ashley says a Tulsa County sheriff's deputy responded to a reported robbery at the El 7 Marez Mexican Cafe  just after 1 a.m. The business is located near 21st and South Garnett.

The deputy saw two masked men enter a nearby vehicle. The driver drove toward the deputy when the deputy and a Tulsa police officer opened fire.

The vehicle rolled to a stop. Officers subdued a male occupant but a second man and woman inside suffered gunshot wounds.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene. The male shooting victim's medical condition was not immediately available Saturday morning. They have not been identified.
