PONTOTOC COUNTY, OK -- The Pontotoc County Sheriff helped arrest a man wanted in connection to a shooting last month that forced Ada schools to be put on lock down.

The officer recognized McNeil, who then drove off.

McNeil hit a car then took off on foot.

Sheriff John Christian was able to corner McNeil with his vehicle and arrest him.

He's being held in the Pontotoc County Jail.
