Suspect in fatal armed robbery ID'd, arrested

TULSA - A man suspected of murder during a south Tulsa robbery last month has been arrested.

Tulsa police arrested 20-year-old Reginald Girod around 1 p.m. Monday on counts of first-degree murder and armed robbery.

Police were called to the Fairmont Terrace Apartments just after midnight Sept. 27. One man -- 19-year-old Robert Long -- was found shot dead, while his brother was hit twice but suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

A cousin of the brothers who also lived in the apartment, was not hurt.

Both men identified Girod as one of three suspects involved and the one who took a money box before leaving the apartment.

Girod is expected in court Tuesday.
