Twenty-four-year-old Carl Harper has turned himself in to Jackson Police. He was wanted for questioning in connection with Thursday night's triple homicide.

Police have identified the victims in the attempted robbery and shootout as 25-year-old Dominique Garrett, 23-year-old Jessie Kelly and 21-year-old Jacarin Robinson. 23-year-old Marquis Garrett is in serious condition. 

Two of the men died at the apartment Thursday night and a third person died Friday morning at Merit Health.

On Thursday, around 10:23 p.m., Jackson police were called to the Westwood Apartments at 3150 Robinson Road regarding a shooting. When police arrived, they found that four people had been shot during an alleged robbery.

The victims were in an apartment playing dominoes when at least three people came inside. Police said they did not force themselves inside but gained "unforced entry" into the apartment.

At least two of the intruders were armed with a gun and demanded the people inside the apartment to give up their belongings.

The people in the apartment also had guns and exchanged gunfire with the intruders.

One of the suspected intruders was shot in the head and pronounced dead on the scene. He has not yet been identified.

Jessie Kelly, another suspected intruder, was shot and taken to Merit Health by a private car by an unknown accomplice. He later died at the hospital.

Investigators were able to question someone who lived in the apartment that was not hurt in the incident. A third accomplice believed to be involved has not yet been identified by police.

This investigation is ongoing. These are the 8th, 9th, and 10th Jackson homicides for 2017.

Police say the investigation is ongoing.
