Tulsa police have identified a man investigators say was killed Saturday in a homeless camp east of downtown.

Mark Clifford Lake, 32, was found dead from gunshot wounds in the 500 block of North Sheridan Road about 9 p.m. Saturday. Officers responded to the area after multiple people went into a convenience store near the camp yelling that someone had been shot.

Witness interviews led to two suspects, and both Jason Arce, 38, and Andres Martinez, 37, were separately arrested in the area after the shooting, police said. Arce remains in the Tulsa County jail without bond, while Martinez remains in the jail in lieu of $1,084,000 bond.

Both are held on complaints of first-degree murder, two counts each of pointing a firearm with intent after a felony conviction and illegal firearms possession.

Lake’s death was Tulsa’s 54th homicide of 2020.
