TEXARAKANA, Ark. (AP) - A man suspected of murder in De Queen, Arkansas, has been arrested in Idabel, Oklahoma.

The Texarkana Gazette reports that the 20-year-old was arrested after a police chase, which started in Broken Bow, Oklahoma, and ended at the Idabel Police Department.

The Sevier County sheriff’s office received a call of a 37-year-old man fatally shot in front of a De Queen mobile home Sunday night. A prosecutor says authorities found a rifle believed to be the weapon used to kill the man.

The suspect allegedly kidnapped another 20-year-old man and carjacked his vehicle before getting into the chase with McCurtain County officers after midnight.

The suspect remains in a jail in Idabel and is expected to face criminal charges in Sevier County.
