GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

Two Gulfport teens are charged with murder after police say they shot Lamont Hayes in his home last week and left him to die.

Monday night, investigators tracked down Jalen Shaquille Williams, 19, and arrested him at his home. Rashad Rejohn Johnson, 17, was arrested at the Harrison County Juvenile Detention Facility, where he was being held on an unrelated charge.

Both young men are now being held at the Harrison County Adult Detention Facility in lieu of $1 million bond.

Police say Williams and Johnson were armed when they entered Hayes's Carson Drive home late on the night of July 22. They woke Hayes up and assaulted him. It was during that attack, that Hayes was shot in the groin. Police say the teens then tried to steal the victim's car, but when they couldn't get in, they left.

As for the victim, the bullet severed an artery and Hayes bled to death, according to Harrison County Coroner Gary Hargrove.
