Police made an arrest in Oklahoma City's 33rd homicide of 2017 after a man’s body was discovered at a northeast Oklahoma City apartment late Friday night.

Police answered a call about a shooting at the Sooner Haven apartment complex, located near NE 36th St. and N. Prospect Ave., just after 11 p.m. Friday. When they arrived, they found 25-year-old Devonte Ellison with a gunshot wound. Ellison was taken to the hospital and later died.

On June 21, Oklahoma City Police arrested Renita Wells on a first degree murder charge. Wells was Ellison's girlfriend.

Correction: An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated Wells faces a second degree murder charge.
