Police arrested a seventh person in connection with the shooting death of a Norman man March 27.

Diane Paige St. Clair, 27, was arrested in connection with the death of Justin Barnard, who was her boyfriend, police said.

Seven people have been arrested since Barnard’s death, all on complaints of murder, burglary, robbery and conspiracy.

Police arrested Isaiah Walker, 23; Rusty Wooten, 31; Jason Harris, 28; and Michael Tubby, 21, on March 28 and arrested Gary Harris, 29, and Montie Jones, 45, on Thursday.

Police said a dispute between Barnard and St. Clair on March 26 led to the shooting the next day.

A group of people broke into Barnard’s home, which he shared with his grandmother, shot him and took his grandmother’s wallet, police said.

During the break-in, Barnard’s grandmother also was hurt, but her injuries were not life-threatening.

She was treated at a hospital and released that night.

Norman police Capt. Tom Easley said the investigation is ongoing. has disabled the comments for this article.
