Two more suspects charged in deadly I-20 Frontage Road shooting


JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – Two more suspects have been arrested for a deadly shooting on I-20 E. Frontage Road.

Jackson Police said 19-year-old Desmond Boothe and 21-year-old Tatyana Mack were both charged with murder and aggravated assault.

19-year-old Kenterious Jones was arrested last week on the same charges.

Investigators believe Boothe fired the shots that killed Jorge Velazquez Morales. Another man was also injured during the shooting on December 6, 2019.

Jones’ car was found in south Jackson after the shooting.

JPD said Boothe was also charged with three counts of shooting into a dwelling on Ventura Drive. Investigators said the home was shot into on three separate occasions.

Police said both Boothe and Mack were apprehended with assistance from the US Marshals Service Task Force.
