— The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office was seeking two men Sunday in connection with a December 2009 armed robbery and shooting in Eureka Springs.

Spokeswoman Debbie Tann said that investigators believe that Jeremy Roman Mclean, 20, of 4252 Deadwyler Drive in Fayetteville, robbed and shot Matthew Washington at 6111 Pine Street Court on Dec. 12, 2009.

Mclean is described as a black man, 6 feet 2 inches tall and weighing approximately 180 pounds. He has black hair, brown eyes and numerous tattoos on both arms.

The state Department of Correction lists Mclean as an absconder from probation, stemming from a 2008 conviction for larceny.

Mclean might be accompanied by another man who is also wanted for questioning, Tanna said. This man, who is black, is known by the street name "BOLO." He has a Bohemian dialect and has a tear-drop tattoo in the corner of his eye. He wears his hair in dreadlocks.

Both men are considered armed and dangerous, Tanna cautioned. Members of the public should not approach them.

Anyone with information about their whereabouts should call the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office at 910-323-1500 or the TIPSLINE at 910-484-8477.

On Oct. 31, 2009, a man was shot next door at 6110 Pine Street Court during what detectives called an argument about money.
