COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Columbia police have arrested one man and are seeking two others in connection with a shooting death of a 23-year-old man.

Martrell T. Smith was charged Tuesday with second-degree murder in the death of Dontay Tolston last week in north-central Columbia.

Police announced Tuesday second-degree murder warrants have been issued for 20-year-old Jimiah A. Lambert of Columbia and 17-year-old Derrick Copelin of New Orleans. Police Sgt. Joe Bernhard says the men are likely armed and dangerous, and have probably left the Columbia area.

The Columbia Daily Tribune reports Tolston died Thursday after being shot in what police say was a drug deal gone bad.
