DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Police in central Iowa say they’ve made an arrest in a shooting this week that killed one Des Moines man and left another injured.

Police said Friday that 26-year-old Larry Deandre Ratliff Jr., of Des Moines, has been charged with first-degree murder, attempted murder, robbery and a weapons count in connection with the Tuesday shooting in the Beaverdale neighborhood. It was not clear Friday whether Ratliff had an attorney.

Police say 36-year-old Antonio Quinn died from his wounds, while 33-year-old Michael James Jr. was treated and released from a hospital.

Police say they are still searching for another person of interest in the shooting.
