A second man is being sought by Alton Police in a fatal shooting from earlier this month. Authorities are looking for 38 year old Bruce D. Bradley of Fairview Heights in connection with the shooting death of 39 year old Melvin Hayes of St. Louis at an abandoned home on Market Street on September 6.
Alton Police say Hayes was shot and killed during the afternoon of the 6th, just before officers were called to a report of shots fired around 4pm that day. Bradley is charged with three counts of first-degree murder, a count of armed criminal action and a count of armed violence. Already charged in the case and in custody is 33 year old Antoine Parker of Belleville. He is being held in the Madison County Jail on a one million dollar bond. Police say Bradley should be considered armed and dangerous and anyone who knows his whereabouts should contact Alton Police at 463-3505 or their local police through 9-1-1.
