CORALVILLE, Iowa (KWWL) -- 19-year-old Milton McAbee, of Chicago, is being charged with 1st Degree Murder in the death of 30-year-old Gregory Jackson.

18-year-old Elijah McAbee , of Chicago, is also charged with Aiding and Abetting - 1st Degree Murder and Attempted Murder.

Coralville Police say they responded to the 900 block of Boston Way on December 25th for the report of gunshots.

When first responders arrived, three people had gunshot wounds. Another person showed up later to a local hospital with a non-life threatening gunshot wound.

Jackson was in critical condition and later died at The University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. His death was ruled a homicide.

Investigators say the progress of the investigation was hampered by uncooperative victims and witnesses. With the help of three Crimestopper tips, the two arrests were made.

Both men are awaiting extradition to Iowa from Kentucky.
