JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - Roy Fitzgerald, a 68-year-old black male, died Sunday, Feb. 2, 2020, after a shooting at a home in west Jackson, according to police.

JPD Sgt. Roderick Holmes said it happened on Garner Street before midnight.

Officers responded to a home on the street and found a deceased black man lying just outside the home with a chest wound.

Police found a second black man inside the home, also with a chest wound.

Holmes did not specify which man was later identified as Fitzgerald, but told reporters in a departmental email that both Fitzgerald and 57-year-old Roger Chapman died as a result of that shooting.

Investigators believe robbery was the motive and the victims may have known the gunman.

Police have not made any arrests in the case.
