OKLAHOMA CITY - Oklahoma City University campus police are urging students and staff to be on the look-out for a suspect wanted in connection to a pharmacy robbery that left a teenager dead and four people charged with murder.

Oklahoma City police are looking for Anthony Morrison, 43. He is one of four people charged with murder in the death of 16-year-old Antwun Parker.

Parker was shot May 19 while trying to rob a south Oklahoma City pharmacy.

Pharmacist Jerome Ersland fired back at Parker and a 14-year-old accomplice who were trying to rob the pharmacy. Prosecutors charged Ersland with murder.

The 14-year-old, along with Emanuel Mitchell and Morrison were also charged with murder under a law that says if someone dies during the commission of a felony that anyone committing the felony can be held accountable for the death.

Police say Mitchell and Morrison convinced Parker and the 14-year-old to try to rob the store.

OCU campus police say they have had contact with Mitchell in the past month near the campus at N.W. 23rd Street and Blackwelder Avenue.
