Officials have released the identity of a man arrested in connection with a shooting death in Jasper.
Jasper Police Chief Robert MacDonald said O'Brien Parks, 19, of Jasper, was shot in the face around 3 p.m. Wednesday in the 1800 block of North Bowie Street.
It is believed that the shooting stemmed from a disagreement Parks had with Roddarian Armstrong, 18, two months ago. Parks was at his aunt's home Bowie when Armstrong and his friends arrived. A police spokesperson said Armstrong's friends were encouraging Parks to confront Armstrong, but Parks refused and went inside the house.
Witnesses said Armstrong shot Parks through a window.
Armstrong is in jail charged with murder. He was arraigned late Thursday by municipal court Judge Ken Jackson. His bond has been set at $1 million.Two people who Chief MacDonald said were egging Armstrong to fight were arrested on unrelated drug charges.
