COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Columbus police are searching for a suspect believed to be involved in a shooting that took place on Cusseta Road.

On Nov. 24 at approximately 11:24 a.m., patrol units responded to a shooting call at 2900 Cusseta Road. 

Upon arrival they discovered 30-year-old Marcus Bowdon, a resident of that address, lying in the yard with gunshot wounds. 

Bowdon was transported to Midtown Medical Center by EMS and was pronounced dead shortly after. His body will be taken to the state crime lab for an autopsy. 
Police have identified Demarte Trevon Harris, 22, as a suspect and issued a murder warrant for his arrest. 

Harris is a black male standing 5’10” and weighs 170 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes. 

Officials confirm the search on Ilges Road earlier on Wednesday was linked to the search for the suspect. 

Police say Harris should be considered armed and dangerous. This is an ongoing investigation that may develop additional suspects. 

If you have any information on his whereabouts you are asked to call police at (706) 653-3400.
