Sgt. Dave Walker says police arrested Dustin Baker, 29, of Claremore for the murder.

A driver headed north on Highway 169 before dawn on Wednesday saw a Jeep parked on the side of the road and called police. Officers found Harris dead in the passenger seat.

Investigators say Baker, who owns the Jeep, was driving at the time of the murder and ran away before police arrived.

Sgt. Walker said police were also looking for 25-year-old Dillon Rose as a person of interest in the homicide. He turned himself into police Thursday afternoon and was arrested on complaints of first-degree murder and for a warrant in Creek County.

Walker said investigators recovered two guns and believe one of them was the murder weapon.
