JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - A teenager has been arrested following a deadly shooting in the Capital City.

Seventeen-year-old Stephan Champion was arrested Saturday and charged with murder.

On Wednesday, May 22, a man was gunned down in the 700 block of McDowell Road. Coroner Sharon Grisham-Stewart has since identified the victim as 17-year-old Jockeyus Wright.

Wright was found lying in the middle of the street.
