Police have made an arrest in the fourth known homicide in Oklahoma City for 2022.
Officers arrested 25-year-old Daquan Andrez Estes Tuesday in the fatal shooting of 38-year-old Oscar Fermin Alvarez, who died on Jan. 6.
Shortly after 7 p.m. that evening, police responded to reports of a shooting at the intersection of Reno Avenue and S Pennsylvania Avenue. Officers found Alvarez shot to death inside a vehicle. Investigators said the shooting stemmed from a "road rage" incident.
It is the second deadly traffic-related shooting reported in Oklahoma City since Jan. 1, after another homicide occurred 15 minutes into the new year.
"The first homicide was related to traffic, but not as much, because they may have known each other," said Sgt. Gary Knight with the Oklahoma City Police Department. "That started in a parking lot, then they fled and chased each other, so I don't know if that was really road rage as much as it was a situation where two people just didn't like each other."

Police said nothing indicates Alvarez and Estes knew each other.
Knight said he did not believe the two recent shootings contributed to any noticeable trend of deadly road rage incidents for the Oklahoma City metro area.
"Those things certainly happen, but we don't really track road rage events, in and of themselves," Knight said. "They're all so different."
Estes was booked into the Oklahoma County jail Tuesday on a murder complaint.
