PITTSBURG, Kan. (AP) Three suspects have been arrested in the shooting death of a 21-year-old Pittsburg man.

Police say they are looking for a fourth suspect in the Oct. 6 death of Ryan Clay Arlan Bailey at a home in Pittsburg.

The three people arrested Thursday by Joplin, Mo., police are 22-year-old Rickey Ramone Smith, 18-year-old Oscar DeLeon, and 18-year-old Randu Rivera, all of Joplin. They are charged with first-degree murder and are currently jailed in Joplin on bond warrants.

It was not immediately clear if the three suspects had attorneys.

The Pittsburg Morning-Sun reports that police are looking for 27-year-old Nathan Whitney, whose last address was in Joplin.

Bailey’s wife told police that an unknown man came into their home in north Pittsburg, confronted her husband and shot him before fleeing.
