Teenager Arrested In Murder Of Kristen Barfield
Washington City Police said Thursday that they have arrested 15-year-old Tyriq Moss of Washington for his alleged role in the shooting death of Kristin Barfield on May 11th. Barfield was sitting on the porch of her Ridge Avenue home with her boyfriend around five p.m., when a car drove by and multiple shots were fired, killing Barfield. Police have said the men in the vehicle were trying to shoot Barfield’s son Trey Willis. According to authorities, that car was being driven by Allen. There was also another person in the same area, believed to be Trey Willis. Police said that Moss and Allen agreed they were going to shoot that person. According to court documents, Moss and Allen fired shots that missed and ultimately hit and killed Barfield. Police say the other two men, 30-year-old Brandon Allen and 27-year-old Javarr Thomas are still at large. Their car, a 2006 Chrysler 300, was found abandoned over the weekend in Mt. Pleasant Township. Allen is described as white, 5′10″ and weighing 200 pounds. Thomas is described as black, 5′4″ and weighing 130 pounds. Police say the two should be considered armed and dangerous. Washington County District Attorney Jason Walsh says Moss, whom they believe was one of the shooters, has been charged with homicide as an adult and is being held without bond in the Washington County Jail.
