TULSA, Oklahoma -- Tulsa Police have arrested a man in connection with the city's latest homicide. 

Homicide Detectives and agents from the Northern Oklahoma Violent Crimes Task Force arrested Desjuante Boyd Wednesday afternoon near 31st and Garnett.

Police say the 18 year old shot Shawn Hunt, also 18, once in the back of the head in the parking lot of the Walmart at 66th and Memorial late Tuesday night.

Someone called Tulsa Police just before midnight about a shooting in the parking lot. Police say witnesses told officers an unidentified suspect shot a passenger in a maroon car in the parking lot.

After the shooting, that car drove Hunt to a Tulsa hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Tulsa Police say they believe the shooting was not random, and that Boyd and Hunt knew each other.
