The Franklin County sheriff’s office is looking for a man suspected in the Thanksgiving Day shooting death of a West Side man.
Da’Juan Mankins, 18, whose address is unknown, was charged on Tuesday with aggravated murder in the death of Glen Allen Stepp, 47, of Volney Avenue, in an alley near his home. Stepp was found shot in the upper body about 5 p.m. on Nov. 26. He died at Mount Carmel West hospital a short time later.
According to witness information, Stepp had met with a group of people in the alley. One of them fired a handgun at least twice at Stepp before running away.
According to a search warrant filed in Franklin County Municipal Court, Stepp had gotten into a black Oldsmobile parked in the alley to make a drug deal. He was shot by a man in the car as he got out of it.
Robbery is considered a possible motive.
Mankins is described as black, about 5 feet 10 inches tall, 215 pounds with tattoos on his face, neck and upper body. Officials believe he might be staying on the Hilltop or in Franklinton. They warn that he is likely armed and considered to be dangerous.
