Shooting suspect taken into custody following standoff in Oklahoma City
OKLAHOMA CITY – A man suspected of being involved in a drive-by shooting is in custody following a tip to CrimeStoppers.
“Our CrimeStoppers real beneficial. We can put that on social media. We can put that through your media and we have someone call in and give us a tip. And they were right,” said Lt. Jeff Flaggert, with the Oklahoma City Police Department.
Late Thursday night, police were involved in a standoff at a home near Britton and Broadway Extension.
According to a police report, investigators received information that Keith Thompson was inside the home. Thompson had a warrant out for his arrest in connection to an assault with a deadly weapon.
Thompson was identified as a suspect in a shooting at a convenience store earlier this month.
When officers tried to serve a warrant at the house on Thursday, Thompson refused to leave the home. He finally surrendered after an hour and a half standoff.
Authorities say there were two women and children inside the home at the time, but they were not harmed.
