Arrest warrants have been issued for two men believed to be responsible for the shooting death of a man the day after Independence Day.

Police said warrants have been issued for Malik Macklin, 17, and Derrick Brown, 18, for first-degree murder.

Desmond Davis was killed on July 5 on North 28th Street in West Memphis, Arkansas. Police said Brown and Macklin are responsible for the shooting.

In addition to first-degree murder, the two men have warrants for first-degree battery in the same incident because another individual was hit in the arm by a bullet from the shooting.

Brown is in custody on unrelated charges.
