VICKSBURG, MS (WLBT) -
Two people have been arrested and charged after a 21-year-old man was shot and killed in connection to a home invasion in Vicksburg over the weekend.
20-year-old Keante Baker and 18-year-old De'arris Thomas have both been charged with capital murder in the death of 21-year-old Deangelo Eli Fields. They were each given a $750,000 bond.
On Saturday June 2, just before 10 pm, police say Baker, Fields and Thomas conspired to rob a home on Valley Street. The homeowner, who apparently sells snacks, soda and cigarettes in the neighborhood, was the target of the attempted home invasion/robbery.
The homeowner told police he saw the armed men on his surveillance system. He then opened the door and fired one shot and they retreated.
As they ran from the home, Baker discharged his weapon and shot Fields in the head. He was later pronounced dead at the scene.
This is an ongoing investigation. If anyone has information on the death of Fields, please call Crime Stoppers at 601-355-TIPS (8477) or online.
