COLUMBIA — Two more suspects were taken into custody Wednesday morning in connection with the fatal shooting of a young Kansas man last weekend.
Daron M. Peal, 23, and his brother Darris A. Peal, 21, of Columbia, were arrested on charges of second-degree robbery and second-degree murder. The U.S. Marshals Service arrested the suspects at about 11 a.m. in Jennings. Daron Peal was identified in a surveillance video and in statements as the man who shot Hobson, Jill Wieneke, Police Department spokeswoman, said.
Aaron Hobson, 22, was shot early Saturday in the parking lot of the Break Time convenience store at 110 E. Nifong Blvd. From Wichita, Kan., Hobson was in town to watch his cousin, Trey Hobson, play in MU's Homecoming game against Oklahoma.
Bond for each of the Peals was set at $1 million, cash. Police reported that Daron Peal had an outstanding warrant for a probation and parole violation at the time of his arrest.
The arrests were a joint effort by the United States Marshals Service, St. Louis Metropolitan Police and Jennings Police Department, the release stated.
Columbia police were still seeking Anthony J. Carr, 24, in connection with the homicide. Police obtained a warrant for his arrest Wednesday morning on charges of second-degree robbery and second-degree murder.
Three others have already been arrested in connection with the homicide: Deshon Joseph A. Houston, 20, and Leo D. Roland, 19, both of Columbia, and Tony L. Lewis, 27, of Boonville.
