JACKSON, MS -

Jackson Police have confirmed they have a man in custody suspected of Thursday night's double murder in the Capital City.

An arrest warrant was issued Friday for Joshua Hurst.

Officer Colendula Green says Hurst turned himself in Saturday, along side his attorney.

Police say a dice game led to an argument and that argument led to four people being shot, two of them were killed.

Hurst faces two counts of murder and two counts of aggravated assault.

The incident happened just before 7:00 Thursday night on Greenwood Avenue.

Ronnie Williams, 32, died at the house. The coroner says he was shot six times.

Kendra Hill, 28, died in the operating room at UMC.

She was shot twice.

Two men survived, but both have life- threatening wounds.

One was shot in the head, the other shot in the stomach.
