Suspect in Lawton nightclub shooting taken into custody

Wichita Falls_The suspect in a Lawton nightclub shooting has been taken into custody in Wichita Falls. Lawton Police say the Bureau of Alcohol and Tobacco and Firearms, and US Marshals have been looking for Kenard Swearengin for weeks.

Police say he faces federal charges for possession of a firearm at "The Spot Nightclub" in Lawton where a shooting wounded four people last December, although Swearengin has not been charged with the actual shootings.

The Marshal's office says they tracked him to nine different homes before finally finding him in Wichita Falls. Swearengin also faces state charges in Oklahoma. Lawton police, while trying to arrest him, shot at a car he was in after the December shooting at the Comanche County nightclub.

Comanche County prosecutors are also seeking to revoke Swarengin's probation on drug charges from 2005.
