Chattanooga police are looking for two men in connection with last week's slaying of a man on Greenwood Road.

Investigators have identified Roderick "Pooh Pooh" Bates, 24, and Emmett "D Baby" Jones, 25, as suspects in the shooting death of Reginald Clark at his home Friday, said police spokesman Nathan Hartwig.

Warrants for first-degree murder and especially aggravated burglary have been issued for both men, Hartwig said.

Police say Clark, 27, got in a fight with several men while he was at the 807 Fire and Ice club. Eventually Clark went to his home with friends, but around 3 a.m. several of the men from the fight burst into the home, shooting and killing Clark, police said.

No one else was injured, but officers at the scene said a firefight likely broke out as the suspects fled.

Anyone with information about the Bates' and Jones' whereabouts can call the Chattanooga Police Department at 423-698-2525 or Crime Stoppers at 423-698-3333.
