Two Men Charged in Monday’s Columbia Shooting

Two Columbia men are in the Boone County Jail, charged with murder in connection to Monday’s shooting death of 33-year-old Deshon Houston. 21-year-old Jajuan Crockett, and 18-year-old Damarkus T. Williams were charged with second-degree murder, armed criminal action and unlawful use of a weapon. The SUV they left the scene in had been reported stolen, and was later found crashed. A witness told investigators he saw a man throw trash bags in a dumpster, where police found the SUV owner’s driver’s license, the shooters’ clothes, and bullets that matched casings at the crime scene.
