MCLEAN COUNTY, Ky. (WEHT) — Police are now looking for a teen they believe shot and killed a man in McLean County several days ago.
Authorities say William C. Arant, 18, of Island is wanted for Murder and Burglary 1st Degree. Police are considering him to be “armed and dangerous.”
On February 9, officers were sent to a home after reports of a man who was unconscious but breathing in a home on West Second Street in Calhoun. The man, later identified as 20-year-old Steven G. Powell, was found with a gunshot wound. The McClean County Sheriff’s Office said EMS determined the scene was not safe for them to remain on scene due to the actions of some of the subjects at the scene so they immediately left, staged nearby and radioed dispatch to notify law enforcement. After the scene was cleared, Powell was taken to a local hospital where he later died, as reported by police.
McLean County Sheriff Ken Frizzel said several subjects were calling 911 during the time, and 911 calls were transferred to Daviess County.
According to officers, murder suspect William Arant is also known by the names “Connor” or “Willie.” Troopers believe he might be in the Owensboro area.
If you know anything on this case or where Arant might be, you’re urged to call KSP Post 16 at 270-826-3312 or your local police agency.
