TULSA – The man wanted for his connection to a drive-by shooting in August that left one dead has reportedly been arrested.

Deonta Mullins, 20, was wanted for first degree murder in the shooting death of Marquis Mullins, who is listed as his brother by Tulsa police.

Mullins was arrested on complaint of first degree murder, operating a vehicle without a required drivers’ license, two counts of use of vehicle in discharge of weapon into dwelling or building, no drivers’ license and a juvenile curfew violation.

The incident, which occurred on August 23, started when Marquis Mullins was a passenger in a vehicle that was reportedly occupied by Zaire Ross, Chrishun Smith and Deonta Mullins, reports Tulsa police.

TPD reports that the four people in the van were “looking to shoot at two adversaries” as they walked down the street. Tulsa police say Smith and Ross fired shots at the two people while they were riding in the van. 

An adult that reportedly lives with the two walking down the street then fired shots at the van and hit Marquis Mullins, reports Tulsa police.

On September 1, Tulsa County issued a warrant for Deonta Mullins for his part in the “drive-by" shooting that resulted in Marquis Mullins' death.
