A 19-year-old man was arrested Tuesday afternoon on charges of eight counts of shooting with intent to kill in the violence following the Oklahoma City Thunder’s playoff victory over the Los Angeles Lakers, authorites said.

Rodney Dewon Hill was arrested about 4:30 p.m. (5:30 p.m. ET), Oklahoma City Police Capt. Dexter Nelson said. The investigation will continue as police have “outstanding suspects,” he said.

Hill was identified by a “victim/witness” in the shooting, according to an affidavit filed in Oklahoma County District Court by Inspector K. Whitebird.

Eight people were shot Monday night just blocks from the Chesapeake Energy Arena as large crowds were leaving the playoff game between the Lakers and the Thunder, police said.
