TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- Police in Tulsa say they've arrested a 28-year-old man in connection with the shooting death of a homeowner.

Authorities say Anthony Ahaisse was taken into custody early Saturday following a high-speed pursuit.

Tulsa County Jail records indicate Ahaisse was being held Sunday on complaints of first-degree murder, possession of a firearm after former conviction of a felony, first-degree burglary and felony eluding. The records don't indicate if Ahaisse is represented by an attorney who could speak for him.

Detectives say Ahaisse is accused of forcing open the door of a mobile home about 12:15 a.m. and shooting the 24-year-old victim multiple times. The victim, whose name hasn't been released, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Witnesses provided a description of Ahaisse's vehicle and he was apprehended about 15 miles away.
