GUTHRIE, Okla. - Police have arrested a second man in connection to the murder of a man who was shot 36 times in front of a Guthrie home.

Police say 24-year-old Joseph Angelo was shot multiple times in the face and torso two weeks ago. It happened at a home in the 300 block of S. Oak Street in Guthrie.

Police say Joseph Angelo was shot at least 36 times.

“The amount of times that the person was shot was very strange. There were two different calibers of shell casings that were located on scene. ...that is odd. That means there's at least two weapons and at least two shooters,” said Sgt. Anthony Gibbs, with the Guthrie Police Department.

Neighbors said Angelo wasn't the type to get into trouble and was always willing to lend a hand.

Another neighbor had reportedly called him for help when he was shot.

Witnesses told police they saw three people running from the home shortly after the shooting took place.

One week after the deadly shooting, police announced that they made an arrest in the case.

Reggie Dewayne Smith was arrested in connection to Angelo's murder, OSBI officials confirmed.

This week, Derrick Smith was located in Oklahoma City.

He was arrested and booked into jail.

Officials say the two men are cousins.

At this time, it is unclear if Reggie Smith and Derrick Smith were the shooters or not.

However, authorities believe more suspects and warrants will be made in the case, the Guthrie News Page reports.
