COLUMBIA — The public might have tips that will lead to the arrest of a second suspect in the shooting death of Donnell Coleman, so the Boone County Sheriff's Department is urging those with information about the crime to come forward.

Coleman, 27, was killed in an apparent home invasion late Sunday night at 7711 La Porte Ave., Apt. A.

Deangelo Grant of 2221 Primrose Drive, one of the two men who allegedly forced their way into his apartment, has been arrested and charged with second-degree murder, armed criminal action and first-degree burglary. The second suspect, however, remains at large.

CrimeStoppers is offering a reward for information that leads to that man's arrest. Those with tips can call 875-8477. Anonymity is guaranteed.
