25-year-old Arby's manager Deionna Young, of Tulsa, Oklahoma is accused of chasing down and lethally shooting a man who threatened her on Sunday.


The man, Desean Tallent, argued with Young at work, threatening her and spitting in her face.

According to Tulsa Police Department' s statement, Tallent threatened Young again as he left.

Police were flagged down and the assault and threats were reported, naming Tallent as the suspect.

Police report that he "promised to come back and hurt her, and about an hour later, came back."

When Tallent returned, he was circling the Arby's parking lot in his vehicle. Young reportedly ran out and got into her vehicle, then began following Tallent.

Police said they were "playing cat and mouse" in their vehicles before Young shot at Tallent, in his still moving vehicle, and returned to work.

Tallent did not stop driving until his car crashed into the entrance of a nearby Walmart. He was then brought to the hospital, where he later died.

Tulsa World reports that Young did not have a license to possess a firearm.
