A 15-year-old unnamed suspect was arrested without incident on Wednesday, in connection with a shooting at a Choctaw High School, Oklahoma football game on August 25 that left one dead and two injured.

In a press conference, Oklahoma County Sheriff Tommie Johnson said that with the cooperation of the US Marshals Service and the Choctaw and Oklahoma City police departments, they had arrested the individual, but had not revealed his name due to his age.

According to News 9, 16-year-old Cordea Carter was identified by the family as the individual killed in the incident. A 15-year-old girl was also shot in the thigh during the shooting and was treated at a local hospital and has since been released. A 42-year-old man was shot in the chest by a Del City police officer working off-duty security for the game and is currently listed in critical condition.

Johnson said, “The Del City officer did not shoot the 16-year-old… Our investigation shows the Del City officer did shoot a 42-year-old in the chest… The officer perceived some sort of threat.” He added, “But it is important to stress we are still very early on in the investigation and comment further on what the officer perceived.”
