LAWTON — Lawton police have arrested four people after a teenager died from a gunshot wound.

Police received a call late Tuesday about a shooting at Summit Springs Apartments. But authorities say officers only found blood and no victim when they responded to the scene.

Lawton police say 17-year-old Deshawn Givens was taken in a private vehicle to a Lawton hospital, where he later died. Police say Givens had been shot in the chest.

Lawton police Capt. Craig Akard tells a local newspaper that the people who brought Givens to the hospital were all interviewed by police. Akard says three juveniles were arrested along with an 18-year-old man.

Akard says no one has been formally charged in Givens' death.
