1. UPDATE 12:25 PM: Suspect in multiple murder has short rap sheet

Muskogee PD press officer Lynn Hamlin said Jarron Deajon Pridgeon, 26, was taken into custody following a brief foot pursuit. The suspect, who was wielding a gun at the time of his arrest, is not cooperating with law enforcement officials at this time, Hamlin said.

Online court records show that Pridgeon had one arrest in 2017, for larceny of an automobile. In February 2019, he was charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, threatening to perform acts of violence, and misdemeanor malicious injury to private property. In June 2019, he was charged with obstruction, resisting an officer, and possession of a controlled dangerous substance. Those were filed as misdemeanors.

During a press conference just after noon, Hamlin said investigators aren't certain about the relationship between the suspect and his victims, but said the shooting wasn't random. She said the survivor is conscious and in stable condition. Hamlin wasn't able to give the ages of the children.
