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.

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

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.
