Tulsa Police have arrested a man in conjunction with a Saturday motel murder.

According to TPD Sgt. David Walker, Fue Xiong, 22, was arrested by the Fugitive Warrant Unit, homicide detectives and K-9 officers Sunday afternoon.

Another man was found shot to death in the parking lot of the Motel 6 at 12525 East 52nd Street. Officers on patrol heard shots fired at about 2:30 a.m.

"When they arrived they found one man down in the parking lot, shot at least once," Walker said. "There was some sort of struggle in the parking lot that led to the shooting."

The man's sport utility vehicle was in the lot, and Walker said police have interviewed all witnesses.

Police made entry to a motel room after the witnesses reported some activity in the room just before the murder.

"Some people said people went into that room and hadn't come out," he said. "We had to go and make sure there wasn't anybody still hurt inside the room."

The room showed signs of occupation, but there was no one inside. Walker said they have requested a search warrant for the room in case there is a connection to the shooting death.

"There's a possibility that our victims or our suspects came from that room at one point," he said.

It is the 15th murder of 2014 in Tulsa.

Police have not yet released any information about the victim.

Xiong was accused of assault and battery and pointing a weapon in 2012 and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon in August 2013. Charges were later dismissed. Court records show witnesses were uncooperative in both cases.
