TCHULA, MS (WLBT) -

Tchula police are charging five men with second degree murder in the death of 44-year-old Clarence Blue.

According to Tchula Police Chief Kenneth Hampton, on May 19, Clarence Blue, a double amputee in a wheelchair, got into a fight with the five men near his home in Tchula.

Blue was transported to UMMC where he was later pronounced dead.

Three of the five are in custody now, according to Hampton.

Tuesday, 19-year-old Kajarius Anderson was arrested at Mississippi Valley State University in Itta Bena.

Last week, the Lexington Police Department assisted in the arrest of 18-year-old Kamechie Coffer.

17-year-old Devonte Pepper was also taken into custody, last week, at an apartment complex in Tchula.

Hampton says they are still looking for 20-year-old Aavon Coffer and 16-year-old Daquarius Lockett.

Pepper is being held at the Greenwood Leflore Co Jail, since he is a juvenile.

According to Hampton, all men will be charged as adults.
