TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Tulsa police say a man arrested for shooting at people in north Tulsa has confessed to shooting and killing a Tulsa County Juvenile Bureau counselor more than three years ago.

Sgt. Dave Walker says officers were called shortly after noon Friday to reports of shots being fired and when they arrested the suspect he confessed to “all kinds of things.”

Walker says the confessions included the June 2013 shooting death of 48-year-old Wayne Bell as Bell was taking out garbage at his home. Walker says a gun found on Lovett is the same caliber as the one used to shoot Bell.

Jail records show the suspect is being held for first-degree murder and five counts of shooting with intent to kill. Court records don’t show formal charges have been filed.
