A charge has been filed against a man who is accused of shooting and killing another man at an Oklahoma City home. 

According to an affidavit, on August 3, officers found the body of 33-year-old Soloman Walker at a home in the 1100 block of N. Kentucky in Oklahoma City. Police said Walker died from a gunshot wound to the head.

During the investigation, officers learned that a man known as “Westside” had been staying with the victim and was there just prior to the officers being notified of the body. “Westside” was later identified as 38-year-old Monte Webb.

A witness reported seeing Webb engage in a confrontation with the victim. Police were told that Webb was accusing the victim of stealing a bag of drugs from him. The witness said the confrontation escalated, and they saw Webb shoot the victim.

Investigators spoke with Webb on Wednesday, August 13. He admitted that he was at Walker’s house the night of the murder. But he denied shooting Walker and said he was not there when the shooting occurred.

Webb was taken into custody. On Friday, August 22, he has been officially charged with first-degree murder in Walker’s death.

This was not Webb’s first run-in with the law. Back in March, Bob Mills SkyNews 9 HD was flying over the scene when Webb reportedly led authorities on a high-speed chase across Oklahoma City.
