(KNZA)--A man has been charged in the shooting death of a former Holton resident last month.

Shawnee County District Attorney Mike Kagy announced in a release Wednesday he has charged 32-year-old Aaron Serrano with second-degree murder in the October 15 shooting death of 23-year-old Jackson Danner.

Meanwhile, Topeka Police also announced Wednesday they are seeking a second suspect in the case, who they identified as 29-year-old Tremale Serrano, of Topeka.

Aaron Serrano was arrested November 3rd by U.S. Marshals in Clay County, Missouri on an outstanding warrant in an unrelated felony case.

He was extradited back to Topeka November 7th and is being held in the Shawnee County Jail on a $1 million bond.

Topeka Police responded to the 16-hundred block of Southwest 21st Street the morning of October 15 where they found Danner suffering from multiple gunshot wounds in the front yard of his residence. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Kagy said a search found a party may have been held at his residence before the incident. He said evidence showed that Danner had been pushed from his home into the yard where he was then shot and killed.

Danner was a 2018 graduate of Holton High School.
