PHENIX CITY, Ala. (WRBL) – Phenix City Police have arrested a suspect for allegedly shooting and killing a man during a party on March 14.

24-year-old Jaquandre Shyontez Bowen was arrested for allegedly shooting and killing 27-year-old Keon Dontavious Simmons. Davis was shot on 35 Abercrombie Road in Phenix City on March 14.

“A large party was being held at this location when the victim was shot,” according to a police statement. “There were numerous persons present when officers arrived.”

Police say the investigation into the homicide led to warrants for the arrest of Bowen. Efforts to locate Bowen have been on going from the beginning of the investigation.
