Tulsa say a man has been arrested for a double murder outside a south Tulsa QuikTrip.
The U.S. Marshal's office arrested 19-year-old Jermaine Jackson around 12:30am in Marianna, Arkansas. He is in the process of being extradited back to Tulsa.
The shooting happened at the QuikTrip near 71st and Riverside just before 1:30am Saturday. Tulsa police have identified the two victims as 18-year-old Kristjan Thorsson and 37-year-old John White. Thorsson died from his injuries on Saturday. Police say White died from his injuries on Monday.
Police say when they arrived they found the two victims in a car parked in a nearby lot. They discovered the men had been in the car arguing with another man standing near the vehicle. The suspect then pulled out a handgun and fired shots inside the car. White tried to drive away, but only managed to get to a nearby church parking lot before stopping. The suspect ran from the QuikTrip parking lot.
Tulsa police homicide detectives worked with fugitive warrants officers and agents with the Northern Oklahoma Violent Crimes Task Force to locate Jackson.
