LAWRENCE, Kan. — A second suspect has been arrested in connection to a deadly shooting last month near the University of Kansas campus in Lawrence.
Lawrence police said Wednesday, authorities from the U.S. Marshals Service arrested 19-year-old Andrel Darnell Spates, Jr. for suspicion of first-degree murder in the killing of 21-year-old Christian Willis, of Wichita.
A week after the killing, police and the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office arrested 18-year-old Javier Isidro Romero also for suspicion of first-degree murder.
Willis was killed in a shooting Sept. 8, at an apartment near 15th Street and Kentucky Street.
Spates was arrested in Tennessee and will be taken to the Douglas County Jail pending an extradition hearing.
