LAWTON, Okla._A man was arrested shortly after police were notified of a deadly shooting at a Lawton hotel.

Lawton police were finishing up a separate incident in the area of Northwest 13th Street and Cache Road around 7:30 p.m. Thursday when a person told them there was a shooting at a nearby hotel. The person gave them a description of the man and said he was running toward Northwest Parkview Boulevard.

Officers went to the hotel room and found 38-year-old Donald Brewer Jr. dead on the bathroom floor. The hotel room and surrounding area was secured as a crime scene and detectives were called in.

Other officers searched for the suspect and found a man partially matching the description near Northwest Parkview Boulevard and Oak Avenue. The man saw police and took off running. Police caught the man after a short chase and took him in for questioning.

Police backtracked the way the suspect would have ran and a backpack lying on the ground with a large amount of marijuana, a hoodie that resembled the original description and a handgun. It’s unclear if that handgun was used in the shooting.

The suspect that was taken in for questioning was identified as 30-year-old Roy Lee White. He was booked in on complaints of murder, resisting an officer and had an outstanding warrant.

Police say Brewer was shot at least once, but they’re waiting for the medical examiner’s report to know more.
