Two suspects identified in Carbondale shooting incident that killed Centralia native

CARBONDALE — Carbondale police have released the identities of two men believed involved in an Easter weekend shooting incident that left on man injured and a bystander dead from a stray bullet that entered his Carbondale home.

Officers responded Sunday morning to a report of shots fired at a house party where a fight reportedly broke out inside the home and then spilled out into the street. Police first discovered the injured man and he was transported to the hospital. Then as they pursued their investigation through the neighborhood, officers discovered 41-year-old Tim Beaty, a Centralia native, had been struck by a stray bullet as he slept in his neighboring home.

Both men were transported to the hospital in Carbondale, where Beaty was pronounced dead and the other man was transferred to a St. Louis area hospital.

According to police, during the initial stages of the early Sunday morning incident, officers arrested 21-year-old Dwayne J. Dunn, of St. Louis, Mo., for alleged Reckless Discharge of a Firearm.

Detectives at the scene quickly determined additional suspects were involved in the incident that also resulted in one man suffering a non-life threatening gunshot wound and being taken to a St. Louis area hospital where he remains.

The other two suspects have been identified as John F. Ingram and Travis T. Tyler. Both men are 21-years-old and have been reported as living in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, Ingram has also been reported as living in St. Louis, and Tyler as living in Hazelwood, Missouri.

Nationwide arrest warrants for Aggravated Battery with a Firearm and Aggravated Discharge of a Firearm with a $1 million dollar bond have been issued for each of them.  The suspects are considered armed and dangerous and there is information that they may be in the St Louis, Missouri area.

Dunn, Tyler and Ingram are all students at Southeast Missouri State and have been placed on interim suspension.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Ingram or Tyler or about the investigation are encouraged to contact the Carbondale Police Department at 618-457-3200.  Ingram and Tyler should be treated as armed and dangerous.
