DAILYKENN.com -- Tully Clark, age 44, was fatally shot in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Arrested and charged with first-degree murder is Michael D. Marshall, 56, reports say.
The shooting apparently occurred after the suspect accused the victim of stealing a marijuana plant from his yard.
A second victim was shot, but survived.
"Marshall is currently serving a six-year suspended sentence after he pled guilty to possession of a controlled drug with intent to distribute, the affidavit states," according to tulsaworld.com.
Two marijuana plants were stolen from the backyard of one of the homes earlier in the day, and a relative of that home’s resident, along with three of his friends, including Marshall, confronted a neighbor about it outside, a probable cause affidavit states.
The neighbor told the group he didn’t steal the plants, and the second shooting victim told police he walked out of the neighbor’s home about that time and stood on the porch with his hand behind his back, implying that he had a gun.
The second victim said he told the group that he was only there to “see that things don’t escalate,” but Marshall pulled out a gun and said, “I have a gun, too,” the affidavit states.
After an exchange of words, Marshall is accused of shooting at the second victim, striking him and Clark, who was inside the house.
The second victim told police he was only “bluffing” and didn’t actually have a gun. A search of the home corroborated that, police said, and officers found a gun thrown along the path where Marshall was said to have fled on foot after the shooting.
Clark and the second victim were hospitalized, and Clark later died.
