Arrest warrant issued for suspect in west Tulsa shooting

TULSA - An arrest warrant has been issued for a suspect in a fatal shooting Tuesday at a west Tulsa apartment complex.

Emil L. Barron, 32, was found dead at Parkview Terrace Apartment Complex near West 61st Street and South Union Place.

On Wednesday, the Tulsa County District Attorney's office issued an arrest warrant for 29-year-old Dwaine Ryder.
