The person of interest sought in Monday evening's homicide in Shawnee was arrested and jailed Wednesday on a complaint of first-degree murder.

Wayne Eric Dyke Jr., 21, was located and apprehended Wednesday morning in Shawnee. He is now jailed without bond in the Pottawatomie County Public Safety Center; formal charges have not been filed.

Dyke is a suspect in the murder of Mark Anthony Little, Shawnee police said.

At about 7:15 p.m. Monday, officers responded to the area of Broadway and Dewey Street, where the shooting occurred.

“Witnesses in the area saw a white male and an Indian male, later identified as Mark Anthony Little, arguing in the street,” said Shawnee Police Cpl. Vivian Lozano-Stafford. “The white male pulled out a firearm and shot Little.”

Lozano-Stafford said Little, 37, was transported by REACT EMS ambulance to SSM St. Anthony Hospital Shawnee, where he later died from his wounds.

Police working the case were able to identify Dyke as a suspect thanks to surveillance cameras from homes in that area.

One video captured Dyke and Little walking down the street, with police recognizing Dyke as the person in that video. While Dyke managed to avoid arrest for more than a day, several tips from the community helped officers locate and arrest Dyke Wednesday morning.

While a motive for the shooting is still under investigation, the two allegedly were arguing in the area of Dewey and Hobson Streets as they walked; Little was shot and killed in the roadway at Broadway and Dewey Streets.

Case reports from this investigation will be turned over to the district attorney's office for review and consideration of formal charges.
