OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. (KSLA) - Lee King, who has connections with the Shreveport area, has been caught in Dallas. The announcement came from the U.S. Marshal Service Friday, July 23. King was wanted by Oklahoma police for a carjacking and double shooting that left two good Samaritans with critical gunshot wounds. U.S. Marshals found King unarmed at a relative’s house in Dallas.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) found evidence linking 27-year-old Lee King to a stolen vehicle in Antlers, Okla. The vehicle is a silver Nissan and was reported stolen on Saturday morning, July 18.

SBI was recently made aware of King after two good Samaritans where found shot on I-40. OSBI investigators stated that the good Sarmatians picked up King and took him to the Love’s Travel stop near Vian, Okla. The trio was seen purchasing a gas can and gasoline before getting in one of the good Samaritan’s car and driving west away from Love’s. The two good Samaritans were found minutes later with gunshot wounds and transported to an Arkansas hospital, where they are in critical, but stable condition. No further update has been given to their conditions.

King was last known to be in Antlers, Okla. after an Antlers police officer attempted to pull King over for a traffic violation. King allegedly led the officer to a dead end, where he ditched the car and disappeared in to a heavily wooded area. King was last seen at 9:30 a.m. Sunday, July 18 at an Antlers thrift store before being found in Dallas.
