Tulsa man shot dead by police after holding security guard at gunpoint in QuikTrip convenience store

TULSA, Oklahoma – A Tulsa man was shot dead by police inside a QuikTrip convenience store after he repeatedly refused to drop his gun.

New body-cam footage released shows Tulsa police officers in December when they shot Tyler Hall, after he told police he would not drop his gun and that they were going to have to shoot him.

Tulsa police said they were responding to a call that a security guard was holding a man at gunpoint who had pointed a gun at the security guard. You can hear officers in the video tell Hall multiple times to drop the gun, but he kept refusing.

After several more attempts, officers opened fire.

Hall was taken to a hospital where he died.

Three of the officers were placed on administrative leave as an internal investigation took place. They were cleared and are now back on duty.
