WEST MEMPHIS, Ark. (WREG)— Two suspects in a shooting death in West Memphis have been arrested and charged with capital murder and other offenses.
Tayshaun Worles, 21, and Vincent Williams, 19, were booked into the Crittenden County jail Monday, according to jail records.
City officials said the men are charged in connection with the June 21 death of Chartarious Jones, who was found suffering from a single gunshot wound to the head in the 1600 block of East Barton and pronounced dead at the scene.
Besides the capital murder charges, both are charged with kidnapping, aggravated assault, residential burglary, theft of property, and terroristic acts.
West Memphis Police say a third suspect involved in the homicide is still at large. Investigators said they are not releasing any further information at this time.
Donielle Love, who lives in the neighborhood, said crime is taking a toll on the community.
“Sadness, pain, most people scared to go out everybody want to be home in their house because they don’t know who to trust they don’t know if he got a gun, or she got a gun,” Love said.
West Memphis Police also confirmed to WREG that Williams was the same man arrested for a double shooting in Downtown Memphis near Hooters that took place a week before Jones was killed.
His grandmother told us off camera he was released from jail on those aggravated assault charges last week before he was taken into custody in Crittenden County.
