JOHNSTON COUNTY, OK -- Authorities say a shooting scene appears to be connected to the alleged crime spree by a man in Ardmore.

The sheriff in Johnston County says the 9-1-1 call came in around 6:45 p.m. "It was a female advising that her daughter had called her and had actually been kidnapped from this residence and taken over into Carter County," says Sheriff Jon Smith.

Smith says they soon learned that not only had there been a kidnapping at the home on Preston Road and Harbet, but also another crime.

"That there had been a shooting at this residence and deputies responded and did locate a male deceased," says Smith.

On Friday morning, the victim was identified as Marcus Cole Holt, 21. Smith says the call came from Gene Autry and the kidnapping happened sometime earlier in the afternoon when they believe Henry Jackson stole Holt's 1999 Ford Taurus at the home in Johnston County.

"I saw him outside here today playing with the baby, one of the babies. He's a nice guy, the kids obviously loved him," says Tishomingo store employee Lisa Pace, a friend of the woman kidnapped.

Friends say the woman is pregnant with a girl and also has two boys. Smith says they were all either released or escaped near Gene Autry.

"It was a home invasion by a subject who again took the female and two small children and perpetrated the crime here," says Smith.

"My boss stopped by on the way to pick Skyler and the babies up. She said they had been taken from their house," says Pace.

As friends and neighbors got word of what happened just down the road in this quiet part of Johnston County, many people were concerned and upset.

"It's pretty scary, I mean we were worried all night about somebody coming by here," says Pace.

"I think they just moved in up there so I didn't really know the people up there, but I know the house and where it's located," says nearby resident Ron Hart.

As investigators look over the home, Smith says they are trying to pin down whether the man found in Ardmore committed this crime. Meantime, some hearing about that suspect's death are breathing a sigh of relief. "It's sad for all them, I'm just glad he's caught," says Hannah Williams, a relative of the kidnapping victim.

Smith says they are working along with Carter County authorities and the OSBI to solve this case.
