Carthage Police announced on Friday that one suspect had been arrested while the search continues for a second suspect in a shooting in Carthage on Jan. 10 that put two people in the hospital.

Carthage Police Officer Chad Dininger announced that Timothy McLeod, 21, Kansas City, Mo., was arrested at 7 p.m. Thursday in Kansas City by the Kansas City Police Department.

Carthage Police went there late Thursday to bring McLeod back to Jasper County to face six felony charges, three counts of armed criminal action, two of first degree assault and one count of first degree robbery.

Dininger said the search continues for for Nathaniel J. Woods, 18, with a last known address in Belton, Missouri. He faces the same charges as McLeod.

Dininger said Austin Chisolm, 21, and the juvenile victim, who was more seriously injured in the shooting had been released from the hospital as of Friday

The shooting happened on at 11:43 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 9 at the home at 11:42 S. River St.

Dininger said investigators have concluded the incident was a drug deal gone bad.

“We believe the juvenile victim had set up the drug deal,” Dininger said. “He was the facilitator of the drug deal and while it was happening, an unknown male entered the home and opened fire. He said 'give me everything you got,' and fired several rounds from a .40 cal. Handgun.”

According to sworn statements by investigators the juvenile victim brought Wood to the home to purchase marijuana.

McLeod then entered the home with the gun, told the people in the home to “give me everything you have,” and started shooting.

The Police statement says Chisolm was hit in the shoulder while the juvenile was hit in the abdomen.

McLeod and Wood fled the home, but one of them dropped a white iPhone on the way out.

Police got a warrant to search the phone and determined it belonged to McLeod.

A “ping history,” showed police that the phone had been in Raytown, a Kansas City suburb, after 8 p.m. the day of the shooting. The phone provided other evidence tying both suspects to the home on River Street in Carthage.

Dininger said the investigation was continuing and officers were still developing leads that could lead to more suspects.

He said Woods was still at large as of Friday.

Dininger said Carthage police detectives are leading the investigation with assistance from the Missouri State Highway Patrol and from the Ozarks Drug Enforcement Team.

He said detectives have not determined that drugs were involved, but the ODET investigators were called in because of their expertise in conducting investigations.
