JACKSON, MS (AP) - An 18-year-old from Jackson has been booked with murder of a 16-year-old Jackson girl who was fatally shot in a motel bathroom.
Jackson police say Darion Givens was arrested late Sunday on a murder charge accusing him of shooting Falisha Miller in the side of the head.
Hinds County Coroner Sharon Grisham-Stewart said it appears that the gun was touching the girl's skin.
Jackson homicide investigator Sgt. Eric Smith gave few details, but ruled out robbery or prostitution as possible motives. He said there were several people in the room. He would not say whether a weapon was recovered.
