BLYTHEVILLE, AR (KAIT) -

Two men wanted for murder in a Blytheville shooting have surrendered to police.

Captain Scott Adams says detectives on Wednesday obtained warrants for first-degree murder against 19-year-old Dante Reed and 28-year-old Jeremy Reed in connection to the shooting death of Michael Angelo Scott, 33.

Both men surrendered to police Thursday morning after detectives spoke with their attorney.

Police say Scott was shot to death Tuesday night at a residence in the 1600-block of Hearn Street.

Witnesses took Scott to Great River Medical Center, where he later died.

Scott's body has been taken to the Arkansas Medical Examiner's office for an autopsy.

The men were arraigned in Blytheville District Court Thursday morning.

Jeremy Reed was charged with first-degree murder, aggravated residential robbery, and possession of a firearm by a certain person.

Dante Reed is charged with first-degree murder and aggravated residential robbery. Dante Reed was already out on bond for two recent aggravated robberies, according to Adams.

Bond was set at $500,000 cash-only for each suspect.

Their next court date is set for Nov. 30.
