A Mississippi man has been charged with two counts of murder after allegedly shooting and killing a 9-year-old boy and a 1-year-old girl in a hostage situation last week.

25-year-old Marquez Griffin is accused of the crime in Jonestown, Mississippi where he was holding a child at gunpoint when deputies arrived. They were able to negotiate with Griffin and got that child to safety.

The 9-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene and the 1-year-old died later at the hospital.

Griffin has also been with two counts of aggravated assault.
