All five suspects given $1 million bond after father gunned down playing basketball at Ridgeland park

RIDGELAND, Miss. (WLBT) - Five people have been charged with murder following the shooting death of a father who was gunned down while playing basketball at Midway Park in Ridgeland last Tuesday.

23-year-old Kendrell Miller died Wednesday, June 19, a day after being shot in the head.

27-year-old Kaland Lemack McCollum, 16-year-old Lenzarius Jayquan Roberts, 17-year-old Christopher Dewayne Clark Tyler, 15-year-old Isaiah Roderick Evans and 22-year-old Darius Joseph Farmer are all charged with murder.

All five suspects have now had their initial court appearances. Evans, Tyler and Roberts and McCollum and now Farmer were all given a $1 million bond.

The white Chevrolet truck believed to have been used in the crime has since been recovered.

Police say Miller was more than likely completely unrelated to the altercation that caused the shooting.
