MADISON, Ill. – A 21-year-old Mizzou student was shot to death Monday while sitting inside a vehicle.
Police were called to the intersection of W. 2nd and Bissell streets at 12:44 a.m. for a report of a traffic accident. When officers arrived, they found Jarrett D. Mosby in the front seat with multiple gunshot wounds.
Mosby was pronounced dead at the scene.
His family says he was a senior at University of Missouri, studying business, and had just been accepted into the Honor Society. Mosby has a 6-year-old son, and he was home for the holidays.
MADISON • The Madison County state’s attorney on Monday filed first-degree murder charges against an East St. Louis man for killing a Mizzou college student last week in an apparent drug deal.
Deneshion M. Swope, 24, is accused of killing Jarrett D. Mosby on Dec. 23 as they sat in a car in Madison. Police say Swope tried to buy marijuana from Mosby. Swope and Mosby were acquaintances and agreed to meet in the early morning hours of Dec. 23.
Mosby, 21, of Collinsville, picked up Swope in his car and the two men got into an argument, according to the Madison County state’s attorney. The argument escalated near 10th and State streets, where Swope allegedly shot Mosby seven times in the upper body, killing him, authorities say.
Police in Madison found Mosby’s body in the front seat of a Pontiac at West Second and Bissell streets. Investigators say they think Swope moved the car from where Mosby had been shot.
