Police said 21-year-old Jekobi Wells of Paris died Dec. 21, 2020, from multiple gunshot wounds. Police were called to the corner of Williams and Marshall streets in Paris at 5:37 p.m. for a report of an injured male getting out of a vehicle. Wells later succumbed to his injuries.

Police said they want to question Conner and Wisdom, as Wells was last seen in their vehicle before he was wounded. The vehicle was a gold or tan Ford Fusion with Kentucky license plate 141 TXZ, which is registered to Wisdom and her mother.

Conner is described as a 5-foot-5 Black male weighing 130 pounds. Wisdom is a 5-foot-1 mixed race female weighing 140 pounds.

Anyone with information on their whereabouts is asked to call the Paris Police Department at 859-987-2100. Police believe Conner and Wisdom are armed, and should not be approached.
