Police are asking for information from the public after issuing warrants for two men suspected in separate homicides, Columbus police said Monday.

Raymond Leon Richmond, a 27-year-old black man with the street name of "Little Raymond," is wanted for the Nov. 9 shooting of Terrell Screws. Lt. John McMichael described him as 5-foot-11 man who weighs 145 pounds.

Screws was found dead of multiple gunshot wounds outside a home on Winston Road. Investigators were unable to determine why Screws, who resided on Twin Chapel Drive, was at the home.

Reginald Jamal Jackson, a 23-year-old black man, is wanted for the Oct. 28 shooting of Dior T. Cheney. He is described as a 6-foot man who weighs 175 pounds.

Cheney was fatally shot near Head Street after returning from Macon with former Columbus resident Travis Dashawn Porter earlier in the evening. Benning Drive residents allegedly saw the pair selling children's clothes out of their trunk some time after 5 p.m.

Cheney's mother, Orba Cheney, told The Ledger-Enquirer that her son and Porter were supposed to be headed to her house at about 7:38 p.m. About 35 minutes later, shots were fired into Cheney's silver 2010 Ford Focus near Head Street.

Police later spoke with Porter, who was being treated for two gunshot wounds to the buttocks and one to the abdomen at Midtown Medical Center.

Porter was later arrested in connection with a Garden Drive house party shooting, which allegedly took place in August.

McMichael warned that both suspects should be considered armed and dangerous, and should not be approached. Anyone with information about the suspects should call 706-653-3400.
