Police have arrested a second man accused in a Christmas Eve homicide. Artilius Jordan was taken into custody without incident at a home at 901 South Jefferson around 5:20 this evening.
Officers had also arrested Moses Ramsey back on Tuesday. The two men are charged with first degree murder, second degree assault and armed criminal action.
Around 9 pm on Christmas Eve, officers responded to reports of shots fired at 627 South Byers. 47 year old Sean Harris of Joplin was transported to a local hospital and later died from a gunshot wound.
While officers were still on scene, they were told another victim had just arrived at the hospital by a personal vehicle, also with a gunshot wound. That male victim had non-life threatening injuries.
