JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - Former Hinds County District Attorney Robert Schuler Smith is representing the man involved in a deadly shooting on Pyle Avenue.

Attorney Smith says his client, Kevez Ellis, is the homeowner who was ‘defending’ his property when Julius Smith entered Ellis’ home.

JPD says Julius Smith, 29, was shot once just after midnight and died on the scene.

Keeves Ellis is expected to turn himself into police this evening, according to attorney Smith. Smith says his client doesn’t have anything to hide.
