BROKEN ARROW, Okla. — A teen is charged with first-degree murder after a 23-year-old was found dead by the Kentucky Fried Chicken near 61st and Garnett on Sept. 22.

Broken Arrow police were responding to a business alarm at the KFC when they found Jorgue Santos, 23, dead on the sidewalk from a single gunshot wound.

After watching surveillance video, BAPD learned that Santos walked up to a group of six men and began talking to them.

An altercation broke out, and one of the six men allegedly fired a handgun at the victim six times and hit him once, according to court documents.

A witness helped BAPD identify the shooter as 16-year-old Jose Eduardo Cardona Perez.

A warrant was issued for Perez's arrest. He was arrested Tuesday afternoon, according to police. He will face a first-degree murder charge.

BAPD are investigating and will provide information as they learn it.
