JEFFERSON CITY — Two suspects have been ordered held without bond in the fatal shooting of a central Missouri man in Jefferson City.

Officers investigating a report of gunfire found 41-year-old Andre Hudson, of Holts Summit, dead in a car shortly before 7:30 p.m. Thursday.

Officers arrested the driver, 20-year-old Justin Beasley, of Jefferson City. Another man, identified as 35-year-old St. Louis resident Calvin Hutson, was found a short distance away with gunshot wounds and arrested.

Both were charged Friday with second-degree murder and other charges. They did not have lawyers, and phone numbers for them could not be found.

Police said Beasley told investigators he and Hutson had arranged a narcotics deal with the victim but intended to rob him instead. He said the victim and Hutson exchanged shots inside the car.
