GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

Officials with the Harrison County District Attorney's office say they are in the process of getting an extradition warrant for a capital murder suspect who's currently in a New Mexico jail.

D'Juan Holloway has been in New Mexico since January of 2015. He's accused of killing Ray Howze, 19, of Gulfport, outside a convenience store in Gulfport then fleeing in the victim's car. Holloway reportedly then led police in New Mexico on a high speed chase and shot at several law enforcement officers.

Holloway is facing several charges in New Mexico but Assistant District Attorney Crosby Parker told WLOX News Now they are actively trying to get him to Mississippi where he faces more severe charges.

Parker said Holloway has waived extradition so an extradition warrant from Governor Phil Bryant's office is necessary to extradite him.

Parker is hoping this process will be completed in the next two to three weeks.
