MAN IDENTIFIED: Homicide Investigation Continues
Des Moines Police had identified the man found shot to death overnight Thursday.
Investigators say 35-year-old Steven Harmon was found at a trailer storage yard on East 17th Street.
Police first responded to a call about an assault around 1:30 a.m. Thursday, but it took police some time to find Harmon’s body. Sgt. Jason Halifax explained the discrepancy, “She was pretty vague initially about what had happened. She wasn’t able to give us a solid address. The phone that she originally called us on was a 911 only phone so we couldn’t call that phone back.”
The female caller was taken to the police station and was questioned. Police say she was not on the scene when the shots were fired, but she did say she heard the shots.
Sgt. Halifax says Detectives are continuing to make progress in the case, but have not identified any suspects at this time.
