Springfield police aren’t saying what may have led up to a deadly shooting outside a home on North 14th Street early Monday. But eyewitness accounts have led officers to a suspect in the fatal shooting.
34-year-old Johnny Ray Priester was arrested Tuesday morning by members of the U.S. Marshal’s Violent Fugitive Task Force.
He’s accused of firing as many as nine shots into a crowd of people outside the home.
20-year-old Quinton Harden was struck in the head as he tried to shield others from the spray of bullets, he died a few hours later.
