UPDATE: 4 Arrested in Lawton Teenager's killing

Posted: Updated:

Lawton, Okla._Four arrests were made in connection to the shooting death of a teenage boy Tuesday night in Lawton.

Police say they arrested the suspected shooter, along with three juveniles Wednesday. He is 18-year-old John Paul Santana. Police say one of the juveniles is accused of being an accessory to the crime, after the fact. The other two are being held as material witnesses.

17-year-old Deshawn Givens was shot at the Summit Village Apartment Complex on Southwest 52nd Street a little past 10 o'clock Tuesday night. When police arrived, witnesses said Givens had been dropped off at the complex a couple of hours before the shooting. They said that same car returned and took Givens to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Police say they have spoken with the people who took him there, but did not release information on what might have led up to the shooting, or Wednesday's arrests. Police say their investigation is continuing.
