JOHNSTON, Iowa -- Johnston police arrested two suspects who have been charged with attempted murder in connection to a shooting that left one man injured.

Police arrested 19-year-old Tyron Izaiah Cratty and 20-year-old Madalynn Marie Perez, both of Des Moines. They were taken into custody at 1:15 a.m. Saturday on material witness arrest warrants.

Cratty and Perez have both been charged with attempted murder, first-degree robbery, willful injury causing serious injury and going armed with intent.

Johnston police responded to the 6000 block of Glen Circle at the Chapel Ridge apartment complex after they received a report of a person thrown from a vehicle shortly before 1 p.m. Friday.

The case remains under investigation.
