Des Moines police review video near murder scene

There is not points to locate on the map

Des Moines police are reviewing video recordings from local businesses in their search to identify the killer of 19-year-old Jayme Thomas.

Detectives are also following up on other tips and leads, but have yet to positively identify a suspect, said Sgt. Bob Bohl, spokesman for the Des Moines police department.

Thomas, a Highline Community College student, and another man were shot early Saturday in the 800 block of Redondo Way South. The man’s injuries were not life-threatening.

A verbal confrontation broke out between two groups, according to police, and a gun was seen being passed between two men in one of the groups.

Bohl said Monday it didn’t appear the two groups knew each other, and that the shooting did not appear to be drug- or gang-related.
