HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Two of the three people arrested and charged with the shooting death of a Hattiesburg gun shop owner made their initial appearance in court Tuesday.

Drakkar Fleming and Gerald Taylor, both of Hattiesburg, have been charged with one count each of capital murder. Breaina McCants of New Orleans has been charged with one count of accessory after the fact of capital murder.

Fleming's bond was set at $750,000. McCants's was set at $150,000. Taylor's has yet to be set as he is waiting in a New Orleans jail.

Edward Cameron, 42, was shot at Collectors Point on Corrinne Street at around 4:45 p.m. Saturday afternoon in an apparent robbery attempt. Forrest County Coroner Butch Benedict said Cameron later died in surgery at Forrest General Hospital.

Hattiesburg police officials say the investigation continues and more charges may be forthcoming.
