Iowa City man accused of helping homicide suspect avoid arrest

IOWA CITY — An Iowa City man is accused of helping the suspect in a homicide avoid arrest.

On Saturday, police detained Jordan R. Hogan, 21, for questioning related to the April 20 shooting death of Kejuan Winters. Police said Hogan had information on the whereabouts of the gunman.

However, Hogan lied to investigators and refused to provide information that would have helped police find the suspect, according to a police criminal complaint.

Police said that by not providing information and through “other actions,” Hogan is “assisting the suspect of the homicide case evade capture.” The name of the suspect is not listed in the criminal complaint.

Iowa City police on Sunday said they were asking for the public’s help in locating a person of interest. Reginald “Reggie” Demorrow Little is wanted for questioning and considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call the Iowa City Police Department at (319) 356-5276. Anonymous tips can be made through Iowa City Area Crime Stoppers.

Winters, 21, was found suffering from multiple gunshot wounds around 9:55 a.m. April 20 at 1960 Broadway St. He later died of his injuries.

Winters’ father, Tyris D. Winters, 41, and Tony M. Watkins, 39, were later charged with attempted murder when they confronted another person about the homicide and shot that person twice.

Hogan was arrested and faces one count of obstructing prosecution, an aggravated misdemeanor.
