A man was arrested on a driving under the influence complaint in an unusual place early Sunday — at the scene of an active homicide investigation in northwest Oklahoma City.

Police were called to NW 10 and N Klein Avenue about 12:45 a.m. after a man suffered a stab wound to the chest. He was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead, police said.

As detectives investigated the area about 1:45 a.m., a man drove his car past a police vehicle blocking traffic and into the crime scene.

Police said Pedro Carrasco-Soria, 34, had bloodshot, watery eyes and his breath smelled like alcohol. He was unable to pass a field sobriety test and refused a breath test, according to the arrest report.

Carrasco-Soria was booked into the Oklahoma County jail on DUI and no state driver’s license complaints. He was released on bond Monday, a jail spokeswoman said.

One arrest has been made in connection with the homicide and another suspect is being sought, police said.
