DEL CITY, Okla. (KFOR) – U.S. Marshals say the final suspect in a deadly shooting that occurred on July 28 has been taken into custody.

Authorities say 16-year-old Tyron Williams was arrested Tuesday morning in Del City.

Moore police responded to a reported shooting at a residence near the 2800 block of Northeast 4th Street at approximately 8:32 p.m. on July 28.

The victim, 24-year-old Marquis Devonne Hawkins, died from his injuries at the University of Oklahoma Medical Center in Oklahoma City.

“The investigation unveiled that multiple individuals were at Mr. Hawkins’ residence when a disturbance ensued, resulting in Mr. Hawkins being shot and fatally wounded,” a Moore police news release states.

The five suspects ran from the scene after the shooting, but officers caught up to two of the suspects. Two others were captured at a later time. Now, the final suspect has been taken into custody.

Authorities have identified the other suspects as 16-year-old Kaden E’maura Jackson, 16-year-old Keyshawn Cantrell Jones, 16-year-old Benjamin Tilton Snell and 18-year-old Decorion Tarnell Barnett.
