A police chase ended with one man dead near 41st and Yale, Wednesday afternoon.

According to Tulsa Police, 20-year-old Christopher Teter took his life after leading officers on a chase beginning at a Quik Trip near 7100 S 92nd East Ave.

Investigators stated that Teter, along with other unidentified suspects, kidnapped a Tulsa man and left him in the woods in Rogers County. Investigators believe there is evidence that the kidnapped victim was tortured.

The Northern Oklahoma Violent Crimes Task Force and Tulsa Homicide squad received a tip in relation to the kidnapping, which resulted in the arrest of 20-year-old Matthew Kelly. Kelly was arrested for kidnapping, possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony and possession of a stolen vehicle.

Other investigative units received a tip that Teter was in the Woodland Hills Mall area.

Teter was located and fled the scene, leading police on a chase through neighborhoods before ending near Promenade Mall.

Teter fired at pursuing police multiple times and struck one of the vehicles near 2200 S. Yale.

Nearing 41st and Peoria, Teter then shot himself in the head with a shotgun.

According to police, the medical examiner will determine if any shots fired from police officers actually struck Teter, however the initial exam at the scene showed evidence only of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The investigation of the initial kidnapping is ongoing and police expect more arrests in the case.
