OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma City police say a man suspected of opening fire at a crowded lake-side restaurant before being shot dead by two bystanders was arrested once as a juvenile.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma lawmakers say their voting records are being distorted by Facebook ads sponsored by a recently formed group that fights tax proposals in the state Legislature. The Oklahoman reports that the ads come from No New Oklahoma Taxes, which formed earlier this year to combat Oklahoma tax bills. One ad praises a lawmaker who voted to fund teacher pay raises with a $474 million tax package. She says the ad represents her as someone "who voted against revenue-raising measures, which is untrue."
