Through an investigation, police discovered Degahson was a suspect.
“Officers located Ulonda Degashon and secured the scene,” the affidavit said. “Degahson was taken to the Springfield Police Division. During an interview with detectives Dan DeWine and Sandy Fent, Degahson admitted to shooting Moore multiple times. Subsequent investigation determined that Degahson purposefully shot Moore.”
Springfield Police Lt. Lou Turner said through the investigation, police determined Degahson and Moore were acquaintances. It appears before shots were fired, however, they got into an argument outside.
Turner said the verbal spat turned into a physical altercation and Degahson allegedly went inside the house, grabbed a gun and shot Moore multiple times.
A CareFlight helicopter was requested for Moore, but he died at Springfield Regional Medical Center.
The homicide is the second in Springfield so far this year.
