Springfield police make arrest in shooting death

Posted:
SPRINGFIELD - The Springfield Police Department says a suspect in a November 7 fatal shooting has been arrested.

Springfield police say they received an anonymous Crime Stoppers tip on the whereabouts of Quarren Smallie, 28.  Police say Smallie is a suspect in the shooting death of a 41-year-old man earlier this month.

Acting on the tip, authorities say the U.S. Marshals Violent Fugitive Task Force and Springfield police set up surveillance on a home that Smallie was allegedly located at.  Authorities say during surveillance, additional evidence was gathered, which led to a search of the residence.  Inside the residence, police say they found Smallie, and took him into custody.

Springfield police also say another person, 30-year-old Latona Thomas, was arrested in conjunction with this investigation.  Police say Thomas faces charges of obstructing justice, aiding and abetting a fugitive, manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance, and possession of a controlled substance.

We will provide more details on this story as they become available.
