JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - Police are now connecting more people from south Jackson with a local carjacking ring.

16-year-old Antwain Dukes is in police custody, charged with capital murder in the death of 69-year-old Carolyn Temple. 

17-year-old Jerome Moore and 18-year-old Antreal Jones are facing the same charge, along with one count of carjacking.

Police say others, who could possibly be tied to those suspects, are responsible for another carjacking.

This one happened in Ridgeland over the weekend; around 1:30 Saturday morning at the Oakbrook apartments on Old Canton Road. Two people were forced out of a 2014 Toyota Camry.

Police tracked the car to the Woodside Drive area of south Jackson on Monday.

Following the standoff and arrests, one of the teens in custody admitted to the the Ridgeland carjacking; but the car was not at that scene. Police say the car was recovered Wednesday after a traffic stop in Hernando, Mississippi.

The driver, Curtis Hampton, was arrested after he fled a traffic stop.

Police say he tried to hide at a Subway inside the local Walmart. Two other people, Montral Gibson and Breana Birtfield, who were in the car were also detained.

Investigators say they told them they were all from south Jackson.

The three are being held for possession of a stolen vehicle. Ridgeland police could file charges against the three as early as Friday.

JPD arrested 4 more suspects on Wednesday. Police say Malcolm Henderson, Quindarius Love, Dontario Rosell and Marlon Perry were all involved in at least 3 known armed carjacking in the metro area. 

Dukes, Jones and Moore received two additional charges for their involvement in two of these armed carjackings.

We're told there are also charges pending in Yazoo and Ridgeland against several of these suspects for similar crimes.

There is an active warrant for Jushun Paige for armed carjacking. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call JPD or Crimestoppers.
