MIAMI BEACH, Fla. – The suspect wanted for a quadruple murder in Oklahoma was captured Tuesday in South Florida.

Chen Wu was arrested in Miami Beach after his car was flagged by a tag reader, according to police.

Investigators say Wu held several people hostage at a marijuana farm in Kingfisher County, Oklahoma over the weekend before killing four of them execution-style.

The county is northwest of Oklahoma City.

A fifth person was also hurt but survived.

Oklahoma City ABC affiliate KOCO reports that authorities haven’t specified the condition of the hospitalized victim.

Authorities say all the victims were Chinese nationals and were familiar with Wu.
