LAWTON, Okla. (AP) - Police in Lawton say a man was found shot to death in a motel room on the city’s north side and a suspect is in custody.

KSWO-TV reports that police identified the dead man as 38-year-old Donald Brewer.

Police told reporters that the man was found in the motel room Thursday night by officers responding to a report of a shooting. Officers say a man seen running from the motel was later arrested and is being held on a murder complaint.

Police say it appears the shooting is the result of a drug deal.
