Columbus police are still searching for the man accused of shooting a Columbus man on New Year’s Day.
Police Lt. Steve Cox said Saturday they have yet to locate Jayaray Wilson, 27. He is accused of shooting 21-year-old Desmond Gunn in the head about 4 p.m. Friday. The two were arguing over a dog at 4325 Old Cusseta Road, Lot 49.
Cox said they were arguing over someone else’s animal, and neither of them own a dog.
Gunn was brought to The Medical Center, where he died around 9:10 p.m. His body was sent to Atlanta early Saturday for an autopsy.
Never miss a local story.
Cox said once Wilson is found, he will be charged with murder and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.
Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call police at 706-653-3400.
