Arby's manager kills man who spat on her, police say

An Arby's manager is accused of shooting and killing a man who threatened and spit in her face.

Tulsa Police say it happened Saturday.  Deionna Young, 25, faces first-degree murder charges in connection with the case.

Police say about 7:50 p.m. they responded to a crash at a Walmart.  They found Desean Tallent had been shot in the chest and later died.

As they continued the investigation they found that Tallent had been involved in an altercation at the Arby's that ended with him making threats to the manager and spitting in her face. 

He promised to come back and hurt her and about an hour later, came back. Officers were flagged down by Young, who filled out a report on the incident, naming Tallent as the assault suspect. 

When Tallent came back and circled the lot, Young allegedly ran outside and got into her car. Police say she followed Tallent and and shot at him and then drove back to work. 

Police served a warrant on Young's apartment and found a pistol, but police say Young claims she destroyed the murder weapon.

Young fully confessed, according to police, and was showing officer where she dumped the gun parts.
