Best Buy shooting suspect arrested after traffic stop

TULSA - The suspect in last Saturday's fatal shooting at a midtown Tulsa Best Buy has been arrested along with two others.

Police say an officer made a traffic stop near 23rd and Jackson Thursday morning. The officer recognized the man from surveillance footage and witness descriptions.

The suspect, 20-year-old Willie Wise, was arrested and taken for questioning.

On Wednesday evening, a black Chevy Malibu connected to the shooting was recovered in the 700 block of North Denver Avenue. Initial eyewitness reports indicated the shooter may have been dropped off in the car.

Authorities say 34-year-old Scott Norman, a known gang member, was the target of Saturday's shooting.

Police say surveillance video showed Wise approaching Norman outside the store. Wise allegedly fired a number of shots, which several callers estimated to be around seven or eight.

Norman and an innocent bystander were both shot. They died after being transported to a nearby hospital.

Shania Craven, 30, was driving the car Wednesday when police recovered it. Police say she was interviewed and subsequently arrested on two complaints of accessory to first-degree murder.

During a press conference Thursday morning, police identified Wise as the shooter. He's being charged with two counts of first-degree murder.

Police also said another man, Jeremy Foster, is in custody, facing two counts of first-degree murder. Foster was in the car at the time of the shooting.
