TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Tulsa has received a $100,000 public safety grant to help reduce violent crime in a troubled neighborhood where four women were shot to death last year.

City officials announced the Byrne Crime Innovation Planning Grant for the south Tulsa neighborhood on Wednesday.

The grant will provide funding for crime analysis, which will help form a strategic plan outlining solutions to combatting violent crime in the area.

Four women were fatally shot last year at a run-down apartment complex in the neighborhood.

Two men have pleaded not guilty in the slayings of 23-year-old twins Rebeika Powell and Kayetie Melchor, 33-year-old Misty Nunley and 55-year-old Julie Jackson.
