Boone County prosecutors have issued an arrest warrant for a second suspect in a Friday evening shooting on McBaine Avenue.

Columbia police requested a warrant Tuesday for Raymond D. Franklin, 17. Franklin was arrested earlier this month in connection with a shooting at Columbia Mall. Capt. Moon McCrary said there was no indication that the two shootings were connected.

About 7 p.m. Friday, officers responded to a complaint of gunfire and located somebody who had been shot in the chest in the 400 block of McBaine Avenue. The 32-year-old Columbia resident was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

Early Saturday, police arrested Garrett Murray in connection with the McBaine Avenue shooting. Murray remains in custody on $100,000 bond. McCrary said Franklin is the only other suspect in the shooting.

Franklin was arrested June 7 and charged with a felony count of discharging a firearm at a motor vehicle in connection with a June 4 incident at Columbia Mall. He was released June 10 after posting $10,000 bail. Ten others were arrested in connection with the incident.
