OKC Murder Suspect In Custody Following Pursuit and Crash
BETHANY, Oklahoma - A murder suspect led police on a wild chase from Oklahoma City into a quiet neighborhood in Bethany, Thursday.
Police said they had been watching 33-year-old Hugo Gonzalez. They tried to arrest him when he pulled into an O'Reilly Auto Parts store parking lot at 10th and Rockwell.
Police said Gonzalez rammed a SUV belonging to a Federal Marshall, and dodged several other police vehicles to get away. However, Gonzalez didn't get very far. He lost control of his Chrysler Sebring a mile north of the original crime scene, and wrecked at Rockwell and 25th Street.
Gonzalez has been wanted for the gunshot murder of Jose Hurtado in Oklahoma last September 13th.
O'Reilly Auto Parts Assistant Manager Colby Bogle was in his store's parking lot helping a customer when he watched Gonzalez try to flee.
“I looked up and the guy was just dodging cops right and left. One was trying to block him out of coming out of our parking lot, and he just nailed it, he hit it hard, and just kept going, didn't look back,” he said.
Gonzalez is now one of three people who have been arrested for the Hurtado murder.
