TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Police have released the name of a 54-year-old man who investigators say was fatally shot by his stepfather.

Sgt. Dave Walker said Monday that George Warkins was shot and killed last week at the home of his mother and stepfather.

Walker says Warkins was found dead in the backyard of the home west of downtown Tulsa. Police have said that the stepfather had blood on his face and said Warkins had beaten him. Police say investigators were told that the stepfather fatally shot Warkins when Warkins charged at him with a knife.

The stepfather’s name hasn’t been released and no arrests have been made. Walker says the investigation is not complete and no report has been given to prosecutors.
