An investigation is underway after Tulsa police found a man shot and killed in a midtown home on Friday.

Tulsa police officers responded to the shooting call near 22nd and Rockford Ave. around 2:30 a.m. Officers arrived and found Tyler Gattis dead in the basement of the home.

Officers talked to the homeowners who said they were sleeping when their dogs started barking and alerted them to a man hiding behind their couch in their basement. One of the family members shot him.

Gattis turned out to be the shooter's brother. Gattis had not been allowed in this home for several years. The shooter was questioned and released pending further investigation.

All of the evidence in this case will be submitted and reviewed by the Tulsa County District Attorney to determine if charges will be filed.
