OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – A suspect in a murder case has been taken into custody following a police chase early Monday morning.
Around 1 a.m. on Monday, dispatchers with the Oklahoma City Police Department received a 911 call about gunshots being heard near S.W. 15th St. and Czech Hall Rd.
When officers arrived at the scene, they found a woman had been shot to death.
The victim has since been identified as 36-year-old Emilia Koteen.
Investigators learned that Kotten was shot and killed in her own driveway after the alleged suspect, 18-year-old Javier Lewis, had fired shots at another family member.
“They were able to obtain a suspect description and when they did so, they were able to locate the suspect vehicle about 10 to 15 minutes later at S.W. 89th and Western, which initiated a pursuit. Officers pursued the vehicle. He crashed into at least one of our scout cars but was taken into custody,” said Sgt. Rob Robertson, with the Oklahoma City Police Department.
Lewis was arrested on numerous charges, including first-degree murder.
