QUINCY -- A Mexico, Mo., man facing charges in a shooting death in Audrain County, Mo., has been arrested in Quincy.

Deyton L. Curtis-Fisher, 22, was arrested Saturday on warrants for second-degree murder, armed criminal action and unlawful use of a weapon, and first-degree burglary.

The Quincy Police Department said Curtis-Fisher was arrested just after 1 a.m. at 217 N. 10th, Apt. B, without incident.

Curtis-Fisher was one of three men wanted in the shooting death of 25-year-old Chance Davis of Mexico.

The Mexico Ledger reported that Davis was killed June 27 after a person forcibly entered a home in the 800 block of West Street.

Warrants were issued July 20 for Curtis-Fisher, Timothy Midgyett, 25, and Sadiq Moore, 23. The Mexico Public Safety Department said it believed all three were in the Quincy area.

The Pike County, Ill., Sheriff's Department stopped a vehicle believed to be driven by Midgyett on July 15. The vehicle drove away from officers as they were trying to identify a passenger, who reportedly was Moore. Officers lost the vehicle after a pursuit.
