HINDS COUNTY - JACKSON -

Police are searching for a murderer.

Four people are killed in West Jackson, and now loved ones want answers.

Police say a relative discovered three bodies around 11:00 Thursday morning at 175 Moon Street. They were shot to death.

Hours later, after police left the scene, loved ones found a fourth body.

The coroner tells 22-year-old Ashley Taylor, 25-year-old Sherrod Brown and 29-year-old Eldra Gibson were all shot one time in the head.

51-year-old Michael Wilson died of multiple stab wounds to the chest. He was found at 171 Moon Street.

"Unfortunately, conflict resolution is something that's non-existent between these individuals, other than gunfire," says Jackson's Assistant Police Chief, Lee Vance.

Dionte Johnson's brother, Eldra Gibson is one of the victims. He can't believe he's gone.

"My brother taught me man," says Johnson. "Talked to me about good stuff: stay in school, do all type of stuff like that. I looked up to my brother. But he will be missed. He'll be missed by a lot of us."

The coroner removed the three bodies, and police left the scene, then suddenly there was commotion further down Moon Street. Loved ones found a fourth body in a different home.

"We kicked the door in and found my cousin laying in the middle of the hallway dead!" says Billy Thompson about his cousin, Michael Wilson.

Now police are left looking for clues.

"The only thing that we got was one individual told us that they heard a car, possibly speeding away from the location about 11:00 last night," says Chief Vance.

Police tell us they have no suspect and no motive. If you have any information about this quadruple killing, please call Jackson Police.
