Tulsa police arrested a Broken Arrow man Wednesday in connection to the murder of missing Tulsa man.

Police say 21-year-old Miguel Chavira shot and killed Joshua Counts who has been missing since October 1, 2011. Counts was last seen at a Tulsa after hours club in the 11000 block of East 11th Street.

Homicide investigators believe Counts was the target of drug robbery the night he disappeared. Police believe Counts was shot when he tried to resist Chavira. His body has not been found.

Investigators believe there is more than one suspect involved in the robbery and murder of Counts. They have interviewed several individuals in the case but have not gotten very far.

Count's family had been searching for the missing father since he disappeared. They talked to his friends and hung up flyers around Tulsa, but lowered their hopes to find him alive when he missed several family gatherings.
