One of two men arrested Thursday in a series of home-invasion robberies has been linked to the shooting death of 17-year-old Kayla Ferrante, Tulsa police announced Friday.

Edwin Jermaine Daniels, 24, is accused of shooting Ferrante about 11:50 p.m. May 26 as she sat in the passenger seat of a car outside her house in the 1500 block of 122nd East Avenue, records show.

Following Daniels' arrest on unrelated robbery complaints, a witness told police that Daniels had confessed to the shooting about three weeks afterward and said he thought the car belonged to rival gang members, according to an arrest report.

Ferrante, who had graduated from Memorial High School the day before, was returning home with her boyfriend, Neikko Perez.
