JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — A fourth man has been arrested in the shooting death of a man at a Mississippi apartment complex earlier this month.

Jackson police told news outlets on Tuesday that 20-year-old Markcus Aaron has been arrested and charged with capital murder.

Aaron is charged in the Feb. 1 shooting death of 20-year-old Quinvarus Parker at an apartment complex in Jackson. It was not known if Aaron has an attorney yet.

Officers found Parker with several gunshot wounds when they went to the apartment complex to check a shooting report. Parker died at the scene.

Officers were told Parker left his apartment to meet someone in the parking lot. Investigators say shots were fired moments later.

The others arrested are 19-year-old Jordan Green, 19-year-old Elvin Horton and 27-year-old Orlando Ciero.
