OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma City police have arrested an 18-year-old man in connection with a fatal shooting on New Year’s Day.

Investigators say Daryan Jones was arrested on Saturday in connection with the shooting death of 19-year-old Valanesha Washington.

Oklahoma City police Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow says Washington was inside a home when someone fired gunshots about 2:15 p.m. Thursday. The shooter was in a vehicle that was driving past the home.

Jones was taken into custody about 3 p.m. and is being held without bond. Police say Jones tried to jump out a second story window to get away from the arresting officers.

Police say Washington lived in the house with her mother and brother. Her death was the Oklahoma City’s first homicide of 2015.
