JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - The Jackson Police Department has identified a man found dead on Woodbine Street as Dennis Ford.

JPD was on the scene earlier Tuesday investigating the homicide.

Detectives say Ford’s body was found behind a home after the homeowner heard several shots.

JPD says the suspect told officers he shot the victim after catching him breaking into his car.

The incident happened at 2800 Woodbine, but the crime scene was discovered on Belvedere Drive, investigators say.

No charges have been filed right now, but investigators say a suspect is in custody.
