2nd arrest made in 17th Avenue murder case


COLUMBUS, Ga — Columbus police say officers have arrested a second suspect in November’s murder on 17th Avenue.

Lieutenant Greg Touchberry says 19-year-old Dylan Haskell was arrested at about 9:30 a.m. Friday morning. Touchberry says Haskell is connected to the death of 36-year-old Ronald Davis.

Davis was found shot in a home in the 4000 block of 17th Avenue back on November 15. Police say Davis was rushed to Midtown Medical Center, but died from his injuries shortly afterwards.

Another suspect 20-year-old Saleem Jackson was arrested earlier this week. Both he and Haskell are charged with murder.

Touchberry says investigators are still looking for additional suspects and more charges will be added.

Both suspects will appear in recorder’s court Tuesday at 8 a.m.
