JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - The suspected shooter in a Jackson murder last week is being held without bond at the Hinds County Detention Center.
18 year-old Trent Cordelle Weathersby made his first court appearance Thursday after surrendering himself to police.
He is a suspect in the shooting death of 41-year-old Christopher Bridges.
Police found Bridges in the middle of Clubview Drive last Thursday with a gunshot wound to the chest.

Bridges was hit after one of the individuals fired through the back window of the vehicle.
