Police: Gun found during search of Iowa home

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Police say a gun has been found in the search of two homicide suspects’ homes and that ballistic testing has been ordered to determine if it was the weapon used to kill a 20-year-old man.

The Des Moines Register reported (http://dmreg.co/12tYRCE) the development late Friday.

Police arrested 18-year-old Marquice Morris and 20-year-old Joshua McCoy on Thursday and charged them with robbery and first-degree murder in the Wednesday shooting death of Christopher Byers.

A message left Saturday with the Polk County Jail requesting to speak to McCoy and Morris was not immediately returned.
