Updated:

TULSA, Okla. - Quick Facts:

  • Police arrested Keenon White, 25
  • He is accused of shooting Teddy Prejean and Shayron Brown 
  • Brown was found to be pregnant; her baby's death was counted as a third murder
  • Tulsa police say they found evidence  to connect White to the gun found along his alleged escape routes
  • He faces three murder charges, accounting for Tulsa's 56th, 57th and 58th homicides.  

 

Police believe they arrested the shooter in two deadly shootings at a south Tulsa apartment complex.  

Officers say they found a loaded .45 hand gun matching the casings found at the Savanna Landing parking lot where Teddy Prejean died and in an apartment where Shayron Brown, between 12 and 16 weeks pregnant, was found dead. 

Investigators say they linked White to both deaths, while the Tulsa County District Attorney requested a bond increase for White so the Tulsa Police Lab could examine evidence further. 

They allegedly received forensic evidence linking White to the gun found along the shooter's escape routes. 

White was initially arrested in the area on unrelated warrants.

Police say the murders could have been prevented if people in the area who knew he was around the complex had contacted the authorities when he was named most wanted in July.
