TULSA -- A friend of the kidnapping and rape suspect who was a shot and killed by police officers in east Tulsa on Friday is speaking out.
The man told 2 Works for You reporter Corley Peel that he could have prevented officers from shooting his friend, David English, 34, if police only gave him a chance.
Wayne Youngwolfe says although English was his lifelong friend, he immediately stepped in when he said he saw English had brutally beaten his girlfriend. He said if police would have let him get to English beforehand, he would have never been shot.
"They didn't give me a chance to go get him," Youngwolfe said. "This is what they wanted, so they got it."
Youngwolfe said English was battling Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
"The war messed him up. He has never been the same person since he came back," Youngwolfe said.
