TULSA, Okla. -

Court records show that David Ware, the suspected shooter of Sgt. Craig Johnson and Officer Aurash Zarkeshan, was arrested by Johnson in 2006.

Investigators said Ware shot and killed Sgt. Johnson and shot officer Zarkeshan during a traffic stop last week. Ware is now charged with murder, shooting with intent to kill and possession of a gun as a felon.
