LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police have arrested two people who were allegedly present when a man was fatally shot on Saturday.
Twenty-five-year-old Christopher "Buddy" Jones died not long after he was dropped off at Kosair Children's Hospital with a gunshot wound early March 16.
Police say 22-year-old Christopher Brandon Keith and 18-year-old Abigail Lee Frazier were with Jones when the incident occurred. According to an arrest report, Keith and Jones were riding in the back seat of a vehicle driven by Frazier when Jones was shot.
Keith admitted to firing the weapon three times before the shooting (but not shooting Jones) according to an arrest report.
After Jones was shot, police say Keith and Frazier hid the weapon. Police also say Frazier took Jones' bloody clothing and threw it in a trash can at a gas station the following day, "because someone else told her to."
When police questioned her about the incident, Frazier allegedly admitted to her role in the crime and agreed to show them where the gun was hidden. While en route, police say Frazier offered to perform a sexual act for the two detectives, "if you just give me a citation."
Both Keith and Frazier were arrested.
Keith was a convicted felon at the time of the shooting, according to police. He was arrested early Monday and charged with tampering with physical evidence and possession of a handgun by a convicted felon.
Frazier -- a Sellersburg, Ind. resident -- was arrested on Sunday, according to reports. Police say she is charged with tampering with physical evidence and bribery of a public servant.
