The story has been updated to reflect corrected information from Columbia Police.

Columbia police have obtained a warrant for the arrest of Anthony J. Carr, 24, on charges of second-degree robbery and *first-degree murder.

Carr, of Columbia, is the sixth suspect in the shooting death of Aaron Hobson, 22, which took place early Saturday in the parking lot of the Break Time convenience store at 110 E. Nifong Blvd. Police have arrested three others in connection with the homicide: Deshon Joseph A. Houston, 20, Leo D. Roland, 19, of Columbia, and Tony L. Lewis, 27, of Boonville.

Police were still seeking two other suspects — Daron Peal, 23, and Darris Peal, 21 — in connection with the homicide, Columbia's second reported this year.

Hobson, of Kansas, was in Columbia to watch his cousin, MU football cornerback Trey Hobson, play in the Homecoming game. He was shot in the chest multiple times, police said.

A memorial service for Hobson will be held Friday in Wichita. Hobson graduated from Wichita Heights High School and lived in the Kansas City suburb of Mission.

Anyone with information is asked to call Columbia police at 874-7652 or CrimeStoppers at 875-TIPS for anonymous tips.
