JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Jackson police have charged 18-year-old Christopher Gunn Jr. with murder and two counts of aggravated assault in a Monday night shooting.

Four people were shot and one was killed on Monday night on Lynch Street in Jackson.

Police say around 10:09 p.m. officers responded to Lynch Street near Arbor Vista Blvd for a shooting. When they arrived, they found 19-year-old Justin Tillman shot multiple times in the street.

He was taken to UMMC to be treated for his injuries where he died shortly after.

At 10:45 p.m., officers were called to Baptist Hospital where two people were admitted with gunshot wounds. Police say that 18-year-old Fredrick Harper and 19-year-old D'Juanya Carter had been shot multiple times.

They were taken to UMMC for treatment where they are in stable condition.

During their investigation, police learned that Harper, Carter and Tillman were all at Boston Fish on Lynch Street sitting in a silver Toyota Camry. A man in a black Lexus approached the three of them, got out of his car and started shooting at them.

Police say that one of the victims in the Camry had a gun and returned fire as the suspect fled.

At 11:34 p.m. that same night, police responded to Merit Health regarding another shooting. They found 18-year-old Christopher Gunn Jr. had been shot with non-life threatening injuries.

Investigators learned that he was dropped off by a black Lexus matching the description of the car involved in the shooting on Lynch Street. 

Gunn Jr. also matched the description of the suspect. So far, police don't have a motive.
