OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Authorities say a third person has been arrested in connection to a shooting that injured several people and left a beloved football player dead.
Just after midnight on New Year’s Day, Oklahoma City police were called to a reported shooting in Midtown.
Investigators say it started as a fight at Sunset Patio Bar, which led to several people being kicked out of the bar.
“The argument between those involved spilled out into the parking lot just north of the business when the gunfire rang out,” said the Oklahoma City Police Department.
Officers arrived on scene to find 23-year-old Anthony Thomas, 25-year-old Lamar Johnson, 26-year-old Jason Caruthers, and 20-year-old Evan Richmond injured in the shooting.
Authorities say 22-year-old Daniel Howard was pronounced dead at the scene.
Howard was a sociology major and student-athlete at Fort Hayes State University in Kansas.
Authorities arrested J’Coal Glover on a complaint of first-degree murder in connection with the case.
Authorities also arrested Destiny Adams on a complaint of accessory to murder.
Now, investigators say a third arrest has been made in the case, and this suspect was found halfway across the country.
Officials with the Oklahoma City Police Department say they identified 27-year-old Khalil Warren as a suspect in the case.
Detectives learned that Warren was likely in another state.
Authorities say he was arrested by U.S. Marshals on March 2 in Pennsylvania on a complaint of first-degree murder.
