Bob Moore Chopper 4 Video: Homicide suspect crashes into power pole after high-speed chase through Oklahoma City

OKLAHOMA CITY - A homicide suspect is in custody after leading police on a high-speed chase Wednesday afternoon through northwest Oklahoma City.

Around 2 p.m., police engaged in high-speed chase with the suspect driving a black SUV.

At one point, officials said the suspect was driving over 80 miles per hour.

He eventually crashed the SUV into a power pole near N.W. 122nd and Walker.

Bob Moore Chopper 4 was above the scene and captured the crash on video:

Officers apprehended Christopher Lamont Carter, 23, at the scene.

Carter was wanted in connection to a homicide in Oklahoma City earlier this month.

Carter will be booked into the Oklahoma County Jail on a murder complaint as well as charges from the pursuit.

"It's very rewarding for the detectives who have worked hard on this case, a little bit of closure for the victim’s family, which we always like to try to provide in a horrendous situation," said Lt. Michelle Henderson. "This ended well for everybody."

Those who knew the murder victim, Jerome Garrett, expressed relief upon learning there was a better shot at justice for the man they loved so dearly.

People living at the apartment complex where it happened say it will make them feel safer.

Police are still looking for a second suspect in connection with the murder.
