    Police later identified the victims as Robert Fields, 40, and Mohid Khandker, 46.

    Investigators believe they were both shot in the head during a robbery

    Police released photos of a suspect and his vehicle.

    Police said the suspect had dropped a glove during the incident, which will allow them to check for fingerprints.

    A woman said she identified the suspect after seeing the surveillance images and contacted police to say her son, Heath Haney, was the man seen in the images.

    Haney was arrested during an unrelated burglary incident in Delaware County, but investigators believe he is connected to the Sapulpa shooting.

    Officials transferred Haney to Sapulpa for questioning.

    Haney faces two counts of first degree murder and one count of first degree robbery.

    Sapulpa police say it does not appear that Haney is connected to the laundromat shooting in Del City.

    They said security camera video appears to show that the shooter knew what he was doing, instantly walking into the store and killing Khandker in the back of the head before raiding the cash register.

    The video also reportedly shows fields entering the store before the suspect shot him in the face and stole cigarettes.

    The small town typically sees a homicide every three years.
