Two arrested in death of Tulsa 14-year-old

Posted: Updated:
TULSA - The Tulsa Police Department (TPD) has announced the arrest of two people in the shooting of 14-year -old April Montano.

A release from TPD says David Ruble, 19, was arrested on Saturday.  Ruble was the driver of the vehicle stopped by police after the shooting.  After interviewing additional witnesses Ruble was taken into custody and charged with murder.

TPD investigators believed the ATV of Montano's family was the focus of a robbery which led to the shooting and that another person had "knowledge about this crime".  The investigators were in contact with that person who was considering his options.

21-year old Demonte Rushing turned himself in to police late Saturday evening. Investigators had enough evidence to arrest Rushing on a charge of murder.

In this investigation the TPD homicide investigators were joined by agents with the Northern Oklahoma Violent Crimes Task Force, Tulsa Police Gang Unit, Tulsa Police Patrol, Tulsa Police K-9 and the Helicopter Unit .

The Tulsa Police Department would like to acknowledge the assistance of the public in the investigation.
