OKLAHOMA CITY -- Oklahoma City Police are seeking a possible witness who may have critical information about a fatal shooting over the weekend.

Investigators said a pickup and a car pulled into a convenience store near Hefner Road and Western Avenue late Friday night. People inside the car and truck were arguing and then started shooting at each other.

Police found the truck nearby and discovered Deangelo Jones was dead inside.

"It was about that time that 911 received a call from a woman also a few blocks away saying that her sons had been there at that store in a vehicle and had been shot at," said Oklahoma City Police Major Sgt. Gary Knight.

Police arrested Latrell Nelson, 17, for first-degree murder in connection with Jones' death.

Police are now looking for a witness who they said may have critical information about the crime.

Anyone with information should call the homicide tip line at 405-297-1200.
