Authorities Make Arrest In Fatal Springfield Shooting


A suspect has been arrested in the fatal shooting of a Springfield man early Monday.

 

Members of the U.S. Marshal's Violent Fugitive Task Force arrested 34-year-old Johnny Ray Priester in connection with the death of 20-year-old Quinton Hardin outside a home on North 14th Street around 3:30 Monday morning.  Witnesses say Hardin was struck in the head as he tried to shield others in a group of people outside the home from the hail of bullets.

 

Police did not immediately release a picture of Priester, citing the ongoing investigation, and did not offer additional details about what may have led to the shooting or how they identified Priester as their suspect.
