YUKON, Okla. (AP) Yukon police are looking for a 26-year-old man in connection with Sunday night's shooting death at a Yukon apartment.

Police Corporal John Bridges says Joshua Barton is a "person of interest" in the shooting death of 26-year-old Jesse Henson.

Henson was found shot to death after officers responded about 8:25 Sunday night to the Colonial Hills Apartments after receiving a call reporting that shots had been fired.

When they arrived, they found Henson just inside the door of his apartment dead from a gunshot wound.

Bridges says witnesses saw Barton throw a rifle into a nearby dumpster that police believe is the weapon used in the shooting.

Barton is described as a white male, about 5’5 tall and 145 pounds with blonde hair and blue eyes. Bridges says he has a tattoo on his neck of a fetus in a jar.
