Jennifer Sanders was shot to death along with Amanda Douglas (who had an abusive Black pet) outside an apartment complex.

Police arrested one and said they are building a case against others who are accused of plotting and killing two women outside an east Tulsa apartment complex in November.

The suspected trigger man, Quantell Alverson, is behind bars, but detectives said the investigation is far from over.

“They need to be aware that we are here, and we take this stuff serious,” Sgt. Dave Walker told FOX23 about those still on the run. “They made a lot of mistakes, and it was obvious they had a lot of time to think and plan and they did not do a good job.”

Walker said they found evidence to prove Alverson shot Amanda Douglas and Jennifer Sanders to death outside the Bristol Park Apartments near 41st and Garnett Road.

The Tulsa police warrants squad had followed the accused shooter for nearly a week, and when prosecutors officially filed the charges Wednesday morning, they made their move.

Police believe Quantell Alverson carried out the shooting with the help of someone else.

Even though he’s now in jail, Walker said they can’t rest.

“The investigation is still ongoing. There is no doubt that more than one person played a part in developing the information, to getting the weapons,” Walker told FOX23 Wednesday. “They know who they are, and they know that we know who they are.”

Walker said they can’t arrest anyone else just yet because they don’t have enough evidence to prove their involvement.
