SAPULPA, Okla. (AP) – Police say they believe the fatal shooting of a gas station owner during a double-homicide and robbery Sunday in Sapulpa was premeditated.
Police Maj. Mike Reed tells the Tulsa World that the gas station’s surveillance video indicates the fatal shooting of 46-year-old Mohid Khandker might have been planned. The suspect also fatally shot 40-year-old Robert Fields in the store, which police say was likely unplanned.
Surveillance video showed a man entering the store while Khandker stood behind the counter. An arrest report said the man went behind Khandker and shot him in the back of the head.
The report alleges the man then shot Fields in the face when he enters the store.
Police also say the suspect took several cartons of cigarettes and moved the register to the back room, where it was found empty by officials.

Delaware County deputies arrested Heath Haney, 37, in connection with the killings. They found him hiding under the porch of a home just outside Dripping Springs on Monday morning.
