Last week, 59-year-old Annie Durham was accused of setting her neighbor’s house on fire. Now, the Del City woman finds herself in even more trouble.

Durham is now also accused of shooting up that same house before lighting it on fire. Firefighters said they caught Durham on camera committing the crimes.

The odd twist, those security cameras belonged to the suspect, according to investigators.

Tulsa police released dramatic body camera video of a suspect falling off of a bridge while trying to escape police.

Officers were called about someone pointing a deadly weapon and shooting with intent to kill near 31st and Sheridan the morning of April 30. Police found the suspect near I-244 and Sheridan when they began to follow his vehicle and attempted to pull him over, police say.

Damico Taylor, 23, of Sand Springs, accelerated hard westbound on I-244 from Delaware Avenue. A short chase began but ended less than a minute later when Taylor’s vehicle hit a barrier wall on the north leg of the Inner Dispersal Loop, police say.

Taylor exited the vehicle and tried to escape by crossing the barrier wall of the elevated roadway. He fell more than 30 feet to the ground below.

He was taken to the hospital where he was admitted in stable condition.

A .40 cal Glock 23C semi-auto pistol, chamber loaded, was recovered from the vehicle.

Police in Muskogee say officers fatally shot a knife-wielding man who was suspected of stabbing two women and attacking a third.
Officer Lincoln Anderson says officers investigating a stabbing Tuesday found the three women inside a home with a man armed with a large knife.

Anderson says the women were taken from the home while the man refused orders to drop the knife and a stun gun was not effective. Anderson says police then surrounded the home and when the man came outside he again would not drop the knife. Anderson says bean bags and a stun grenade did not stop him.

Anderson says the man was shot several times as he charged toward officers.

No names or the condition of the women have been released.
