Update: 4:50 p.m. Bricktown shooting suspect Avery Myers “confessed to shooting into the crowd,” an Oklahoma City police detective reported Wednesday in a court affidavit.

Police investigating the shooting after the Oklahoma City Thunder playoff game Monday arrested Myers, 16, of Oklahoma City, on Tuesday. He is being held in the Oklahoma County jail on eight complaints of shooting with intent to kill.

2:30 p.m. A judge has ordered the release of a Warr Acres man who was jailed Tuesday on eight complaints of shooting with intent to kill.

Rodney Dewon Hill, 19, was arrested Tuesday afternoon as police investigated the shootings of eight people in Bricktown following Monday night's Oklahoma City Thunder playoff game. Hill's attorney has said he is not the shooter.

Oklahoma County District Judge Cindy Truong on Wednesday morning ordered Hill released “pending further investigation.” She signed the order after meeting with District Attorney David Prater.

Her order does not mean Hill will be released right away from the Oklahoma County jail. Hill remained in jail Wednesday afternoon because he owes hundreds of dollars in fines on municipal driving offenses. His attorney said Hill may remain in jail for a few days.
