Tuesday police arrested the suspect for the quadruple homicide at an Oklahoma cannabis grow earlier this week.
The suspect, Wu Chen, was taken into custody on Tuesday after a car tag reader flagged the vehicle the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation stated. Miami Police reacted quickly and arrested Chen without incident.
He'll be extradited back to Oklahoma where he will face charges of murder and shooting with intent to kill.
Three men and one woman, all Chinese citizens, appear to be killed execution style. Their bodies were discovered on a 10-acre licensed cannabis farm near the town of Hennessee on Sunday night according to authorities.
The fifth victim survived the attack and was flown to a nearby hospital for treatment. Police quickly had a suspect identified and were working to apprehend the suspect so the man’s identity was withheld from the press.
On Tuesday the OSBI stated in a press release that they believed, based on their investigation so far that, “The suspect was inside that building for a significant amount of time before the executions began,” and that the incident doesn't appear to be random in nature.
An Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority(OMMA) spokesman said that the farm did have a license to grow registered to the address but they were still looking into whether or not the license was obtained fraudulently
