COLUMBIA - Columbia Police said Monday they have arrested a third suspect in the shooting death of an MU football player's cousin at the Break Time on 110 East Nifong Friday night. Police arrested 20-year-old Deshon Joseph Alexa Houston of Columbia for robbery in the second degree and murder in the second degree for 22-year-old Aaron Hobson of Kansas. Police said Houston actually gave them the information they needed to arrest him.

"He actually came down here just to talk to the detectives and was being interviewed by them and during the course of the interview he actually implicated himself and told us that he struck Aaron Hobson during the incident," officer Jill Wieneke said.

Police said a surveillance video showed several suspects gathering around Houston's vehicle just before approaching Hobson's vehicle and robbing him. Police said Daron M. Peal then shot Hobson with a handgun and the suspects ran. Police also claim Houston admitted Sunday he struck Hobson.

Police said they originally took in 27-year-old Tony Lewis of Boonville and 19-year-old Leo Roland of Columbia, both for second degree murder and first degree robbery. Police are still looking for two other suspects in this case. Daron Martez Peal, 23, and his brother, Darris Arlando Peal, 21, both of Columbia. Police said Daron and Darris Peal should be considered armed and dangerous. Police said Hobson's autopsy is scheduled for today.

Police are also investigating another weekend homicide. Columbia Police officers conducted a death investigation at 8:15 Sunday morning in north Columbia for a 55-year-old homeless man. His body was found in a homeless camp by an acquaintance in the area just northeast of the now-closed Everett's Restaurant at 1601 Rangeline Street. He had facial and head injuries. Police said his injuries do not appear to be accident related.

KOMU visited the scene Monday but the camp now appears to be gone. Police said investigators are still trying to find out what kind of weapon was used in his death. Police said they have no suspects but said Tuesday's autopsy should give them more information.

Anyone with information about the whereabouts of the suspects in the Hobson case, or any other details about either case, is encouraged to call 911 or Crimestoppers at 875-TIPS.
