Man arrested for deadly drive-by shooting in southeast Oklahoma City

OKLAHOMA CITY – Authorities say a man has been taken into custody for the murder of an Oklahoma City man last month.

Around 7:40 p.m. on March 29, officers were called to a drive-by shooting near S.E. 59th and the I-35 Service Rd.

When police arrived at the scene, they found a man suffering from a gunshot wound.

Officials are investigating a shooting in SE Oklahoma City.

“Officers responded, they found a male in front of a residence in the 700 block. He was transported by EMSA to the hospital where, unfortunately, he was pronounced dead from his injuries,” MSgt. Gary Knight, with the Oklahoma City Police Department told News 4.

The victim was later identified as 46-year-old Arnold Brown.

One month after the crime, investigators say they have made an arrest in the case.
