VALLIANT, Okla. -- One man is in custody and another remains at large after a drug deal went sour and a young man lost his life Saturday night.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation said 18-year-old Christyan Boswell of Valliant was shot and killed around the corner from the elementary school at the intersection of Wilbur and Mosley streets.

Cody Hilderbrand was arrested at the scene; the 20-year-old was later charged with first degree manslaughter.

The OSBI issued an arrest warrant for a man named Justin Ruther, 37, who is facing the same charge if apprehended.
