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.
