SUSPECTS ARRESTED: Two Charged In Shooting


Des Moines police say they’ve made arrests in connection with shootings in a southeast side neighborhood last week.

The first shooting happened at Jordan Park around 2:30 a.m. on June 5th. Police say Trevon Young was shot in the wrist and the leg.

Police say while they were investigating the shooting, they heard gunshots a few blocks away. A drive-by shooter opened fire on a home on Southeast Seventh. No one was hurt in that shooting.

Police have arrested 24-year-old Floyd Ezell Jr. and charged him with willful injury causing serious injury in connection with the shooting that injured Young.

A seventeen-year-old male was also arrested and charged with intimidation with a dangerous weapon for firing a gun into the air.

No arrests have been made in connection with the drive-by shooting but police believe the incidents are linked.
