TULSA, Okla. – A woman was shot and killed after having an argument at a Tulsa gas station early Monday morning.

Around 4 a.m. Monday, a woman met with a man, identified as 23-year-old Ty Rutledge, at a QuikTrip in Tulsa for what police described as a passenger exchange, the Tulsa World reports.

“What we’ve heard is somebody came out of the victim’s car and got into the suspect’s car,” Tulsa Police Sgt. Dave Walker told the Tulsa World. “That exchange happened without incident.”

After the passenger in the woman’s car got out of the vehicle and got into Rutledge’s vehicle, an argument started between Rutledge and the woman.
