Muskogee police are calling a shooting last night first-degree murder after a Muskogee woman was found shot in an apartment at 827 S. York St.

Officers worked to save the victim, but she was later pronounced dead.

They are not releasing the 18-year-old victim’s name until her family has been notified.

Mark Thompson, 18, was arrested as a suspect and taken to jail.

“Thompson will be charged with first-degree murder in the Muskogee County District Court,” Officer Lincoln Anderson said. “He was arrested without incident.”

The district attorney determines all final charges. The shooting occurred at 11:17 p.m. Because the investigation is ongoing, police can’t release any more information, Anderson said.
