MOSS POINT, Miss. (WLOX) - Authorities are asking for the public’s help in locating two suspects wanted in-connection with fatally shooting a 27-year-old man in Moss Point last Thursday.
According to Moss Point Police, Anthony Rashawn Hunt, and JaMichael Jacquiz Jenkins are both wanted for homicide in the shooting death of 27-year-old Devonte Carson.
They are also accompanied by Nekila Michelle Davis aka Moonpie of Ocean Springs and Moss Point, who is considered a person of interest. They should all be considered armed and dangerous.
The deadly confrontation happened around 11 p.m. in the 4900 block of Lilly Circle. Investigators talked to several witnesses who said trouble started when a dark brown or tan SUV, possibly a Chevy Trailblazer, drove up to the area and two men got out. The driver of the vehicle was a woman.
The men then approached Carson and started arguing. That’s when shots were fired, and Carson was hit. Carson was pronounced dead at Singing River Hospital from a gunshot wound.
Witnesses described the shooter as a skinny, light-skinned black man, possibly in his 30s with short hair. He wore glasses, a white t-shirt, and dark pants. His accomplice was described as a heavier-set, dark-skinned black man in his 40s, wearing a white t-shirt.
So far, police haven’t determined a motive for the killing.
