POTEAU, Okla. (AP) – Authorities in Oklahoma have arrested a man accused of fatally shooting his uncle with a bow and arrow.

Poteau Assistant Police Chief Greg Russell said Monday that 33-year-old Joshua Dean Wade was booked into the LeFlore County jail for first-degree murder following the death of 54-year-old Buddy Wayne Wade. A formal charge has not been filed.

Buddy Wade’s body was found outside an apartment with an arrow in his chest about 8:25 p.m. Sunday. Russell says officers arrested Joshua Wade there.

Investigators believe Joshua Wade rang his uncle’s doorbell twice and then hid. Russel says Buddy Wade stepped onto the porch after the second ring and that Joshua Wade then shot him with an arrow.

Court paperwork doesn’t list an attorney to speak for Joshua Wade. A motive is unknown.
