Suspect in death of ex-Louisiana mayor arrested in Oklahoma
TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Police say a man accused of fatally shooting the former mayor of a small Louisiana city has been arrested in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
The Tulsa World reports that 39-year-old Oshay Booker was taken into custody Tuesday following a brief standoff.
Tulsa County Jail records indicate he was being held without bond Wednesday as a fugitive from Louisiana. The records do not list a lawyer to speak for him.
Booker is accused of shooting former Winnfield Mayor Ronald Goff to death on June 11 in the north-central Louisiana city. Authorities say Goff was Booker’s step-father.
Sgt. Luke Sherman of the Tulsa Police Department says Booker surrendered peacefully after authorities surrounded his apartment. Sherman says it was not immediately known if Booker was armed.
