JACKSON, MS (WLBT) -

JPD says one of four suspects, believed to have been involved in a deadly triple shooting from last Friday, June 24, has been captured.

JPD tweeted saying 30-year-old Robby Lewis was taken into custody this evening near the 900 block of Peabody Street.

Earlier Friday JPD Commander Tyree Jones said 30-year-old Preston Lewis, 24-year-old Jeremy Lewis, 30-year-old Robby Lewis and 30-year-old Corey Smith were identified as suspects and have been charged in the shootings.

The suspects, are each being charged with one count of murder, two counts of aggravated assault and one count of shooting in an occupied vehicle. 

Jones said warrants have been issued for the suspects' arrests.

Commander Jones identified the deceased as 30-year-old William Potts, who was shot in the chest.

He said 22-year-old Bobby Potts was also shot in the chest and, at last check, was in critical condition.

The third victim, 26-year-old Paul Staples, was shot in the foot. 

Commander Jones said around 11:37 p.m. Friday, officers responded to Merit Health, where the men went for treatment.

We're told the shooting possibly occurred in the area of University Blvd., near Cherry Street. 

Jones said the Lexus SUV, the victims were driving, was approached by at least four males inside a maroon vehicle. 

Commander Jones said the men inside the vehicle fired shots striking the SUV several times, also striking the victims. The vehicle could possibly be a Pontiac.

Jones said the driver of the SUV, Staples, fled the scene to seek medical attention.

The motive for the shooting is unknown at this time and officials say the case is still under investigation.

Anyone with any information on the whereabouts of these suspects is urged to contact the Jackson Police Department at 601-960-1234 or 601-355-TIPS (8477).
