DES MOINES, Iowa — The Des Moines Police Department has released the name of the victim who was shot and killed late Friday night.
Tyrell Lavell Grimes, 39, passed away from his bullet wounds Friday night.
Andrew Jarome Harris, 42, was charged with First Degree Murder. Police believe Harris shot Grimes after an argument between the two escalated.
Police said residents near the scene of the shooting were concerned about it’s proximity to Drake University’s campus, nearby restaurants, and businesses but investigators assured the public it was an isolated incident.
“There’s been a lot of effort revitalizing that area of town and with this Dog Town initiative this is something we want to make sure people understand that it has nothing to do with the neighborhood. This person brought that violence there and they could have brought it anywhere,” said DMPD Sergeant Paul Parizek.
