Arrest Made In Weekend Murder
Tulsa Police have arrested a teenager in connection with Sunday's deadly downtown nightclub shooting. The suspect, 18-year-old Durayco Fox now faces a first degree murder charge. News On 6 anchor Omar Villafranca reports investigators believe the shooting may have been gang related.
The scene last week outside of Club UV at Second and Greenwood had Tulsa police swarming the location and club-goers running for safety. Officers say a man walked up to 21-year-old Eric Bell at the club, pointed a gun and shot and killed him.
"The victim also had some gang associations and a feud had continued between these groups and this was the end result," said Tulsa Police Sgt. Mike Huff.
Officers arrested Durayco Fox Thursday afternoon. The 18-year-old was booked on a first degree murder complaint. Court documents show Fox had a run-in with police less than a week before the deadly shooting.
"Christmas Day, he had an arrest for burglary. Charges were not filed and he was able to get out," said Tulsa Police Sgt. Mike Huff.
Officers served a search warrant on Fox, but are tight lipped on what they found. Huff says Club UV's owners aren't cooperating with the investigation, but he hopes things will change.
"We're hoping for more cooperation from them, and from people at the scene," said Tulsa Police Sgt. Mike Huff.
Police still need help from the public. Anyone who has information about the case is asked to call Crimestoppers at 596-COPS.
