DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A man being sought for the shooting death of a Des Moines man in October has been arrested in Minneapolis.
Des Moines police say 27-year-old Lester Richardson was arrested Thursday and is being held in the Hennepin County jail awaiting extradition to Iowa.
A warrant was issued last month charging Richardson with first-degree murder in the Oct. 14 shooting death of Martin Turks. Police responded to a report of gunshots outside of Des Moines business and found the 29-year-old Turks dead at the scene.
