July 7, 2019

STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — Police in Stillwater say an early-morning fatal shooting has led to the arrest of a 29-year-old suspect.

Stillwater Police Capt. Kyle Gibbs says Darwin Lonestar Marcel Doyal of Stillwater was booked on a murder complaint Sunday in connection with the death of 23-year-old Jared Lance Roybal of Tonkawa.

Gibbs says officers responding to reports of a shooting found Roybal with a gunshot wound in the neck in a van at a convenience store parking lot at 1:45 a.m. Sunday. Roybal later died from his wound.

Investigators learned that the victim had been driven to the convenience store by his brother after they encountered two men who were arguing. Gibbs says one of them produced a handgun and shot Roybal.

It wasn’t immediately clear if Doyal is represented by an attorney.
