JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) – Three teenagers are charged with capital murder after a security guard was shot and killed at a gas station in Jackson.

According to Jackson Police Chief Joseph Wade, the incident happened around 1:30 a.m. at the M&M Food Express located on Cooper Road.

Chief Wade said the victim, Roy Love, was providing security at the gas station when he approached three juveniles in the parking lot, asking them to leave.

The three teens, 17-year-old Trent Wooten, 17-year-old Zaylon Norton, and 16-year-old Kadaris Cohen, allegedly attacked Love, took his weapon, and shot him.

Love died as a result of the attack.

“I can’t believe it, man,” said Tony Williams, who knew and talked with Love just hours before he was shot and killed. “He was well known in the neighborhood, a neighborhood legend. I just hate to see him gone. He will be missed.”

“This man gets up every day and comes to work, and for them to try and take his little gun from him, that’s just sad,” said Jackie Kitchens, who knew Love. “He sees us pull up out here. If it’s women, he’s going to come out here to make sure we’re in there safe and come back to our cars safe.”

Officers responded to Woody Drive and Monticello Drive area to search for the suspects. Shortly after, the three teens were located.

All three are charged with capital murder and denied bond.
