Oklahoma City police announce arrest in weekend shooting death of man


OKLAHOMA CITY — Oklahoma City police say a suspect has been arrested in the weekend shooting death of a man on the city's northwest side.

Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow said Monday that officers acting on a tip found the suspect at a home in southwest Oklahoma City and arrested him on a first-degree murder complaint in the shooting death of 28-year-old Jamaris Miles.

Online court records do not show that formal charges have been filed.

Wardlow says officers investigating reports of shots being fired early Saturday found Miles dead inside a vehicle with apparent gunshot wounds.
