ELLISVILLE, Miss. (WDAM) - One of the two at-large suspects sought in a robbery that sent one man to the hospital in critical condition surrendered overnight to the Jones County Sheriff’s Department.

JCSD called Jackson the alleged shooter.

Jackson, 18, is charged with armed robbery and aggravated assault/manifest extreme indifference to life.

Jackson and a 17 year old male juvenile accomplice now have been arrested and charged.

A third suspect, Jordan Ciahjra Dean, remains at large and facing charges.

Additional information on Jackson’s initial appearance in Jones County Justice Court will be provided later Saturday, JCSD said.
