OKLAHOMA CITY — Police have arrested a suspect in the fatal shooting of a Tecumseh man at a home in southwest Oklahoma City.

Police said Thursday that 19-year-old Hunter Ethan Todd has been arrested on a manslaughter warrant in the fatal shooting of 47-year-old Kevin Gipson.

Police say Gipson died at a hospital Monday following the early morning shooting in which Todd was allegedly handling a firearm recklessly and it accidentally fired.

Jail records do not list an attorney for Todd and say he’s being held on additional weapons and drug charges.
