LAWTON, Okla_The suspected gunman in Thursday's deadly early morning shooting has been identified and is under arrest.

Police arrested José Villanueva after Charles Tyson was found dead on a front porch at 24th and Southwest J Avenue.

Police believe Villanueva shot Tyson in the back and then beat him with the gun after an argument escalated. Villanueva was found and arrested a short time later.  Investigators say he has already confessed to the shooting.

He's being held on a first-degree murder complaint, and is expected to be formally charged next week.
