HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Hattiesburg police have arrested a 5th person in connection to the shooting death of a Collins teenager at Club Memories in the Hub City.

Stokes Wells, 23, of Mount Olive was arrested by Hattiesburg Police Thursday evening and charged with hindering prosecution in connection to the shooting death of Jabarri Goudy.

Wells is currently being housed at the Forrest County Jail where he is awaiting his initial appearance.

Initial appearances:

The suspects in connection to the shooting death of a Collins teen made their initial appearance in court Wednesday morning. 

The first suspect, Arthur Jones Jr., was charged with murder and had his bond set at $500,000. 

The second suspect, Keith Lee, had his charges upgraded to accessory after the fact of murder. His bond was set at $250,000. However, because Keith had three previous felony convictions, MDOC placed a hold on him with no bond allowed. 

The third suspect, Montrelle Lee, was charged with hindering prosecution. His bond was set at $100,000. Montrelle also had a hold placed on him by MDOC. He had two prior felony convictions, and was on probation for possession with intent and robbery. 

The fourth suspect, Nijah Gray-Lane, was charged with hindering prosecution, and had her bond set at $50,000. 

Three of the suspects, Jones, Montrelle, and Keith, were arrested in Gulfport Monday evening in connection to the homicide. 

The fourth suspect, Gray-Lane, was arrested and charged late Tuesday night for her part in the crime. 

The scene: 

Goudy became Hattiesburg’s fourth homicide victim of 2015 after being shot at Club Memories in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Hattiesburg Police Department Lt. Jon Traxler said officers were called to Forrest General Hospital at 12:12 a.m. after a victim arrived at the emergency room in a private vehicle.

The shooting occurred in the parking lot area of Club Memories, located at 1720 North 31st Avenue.

Forrest County Deputy Coroner Lisa Klem said the body was sent to the State Crime Lab in Jackson for an autopsy.
