“Medical professionals are telling us the victim has very little brain activity,” Nelson said. “He is still alive and on life support, but it's a touch and go situation.”

Bethany police spotted and followed a driver who matched a description of the shooter. The man, later identified by police as Clark, crashed his car and was taken into custody.

Police linked Clark to the July convenience store slaying after a woman called officers Thursday and said he looked like a photo of the killer she saw on television, according to an affidavit filed Friday in Oklahoma County District Court.

Tests done on .40-caliber bullet casings found at both shooting scenes indicated they were fired from the same pistol, according to the affidavit.

Police recovered a .357-caliber Magnum handgun in Clark's car thought to have been owned by Hajimirzaei, according to court papers.
