FBI: California Fugitive Arrested In Oklahoma

Posted: Updated:

PONCA CITY, Okla. (AP) - The FBI says it's arrested a man in Oklahoma who was wanted in a shooting in southern California.

The FBI says authorities arrested 24-year-old Leon Lowe on Wednesday in Ponca City in northern Oklahoma. Authorities say Lowe was wanted on an attempted murder warrant in connection with a May 29 shooting in Moreno Valley that wounded one person.

The FBI says investigators believe Lowe fled California shortly after the shooting and headed to Oklahoma. Ponca City police arrested Lowe on a federal charge of unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.

Lowe is being held at the Kay County jail in Newkirk and is expected to be extradited to Riverside County sometime soon. Authorities did not know if Lowe had an attorney.
