Reward offered in security guard's murder

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Jackson Police continue to search for the gunmen involved with the double shooting at a Jackson gas station earlier this week.

Fifty-four-year-old James McKinney, a security guard at the store was fatally shot during the heist. Well wishers left a memorial of cards and gifts on McKinney's truck in front of the store.  They are also collecting money to help pay for his funeral that has been set for Monday at 11 a.m. at Westhaven funeral home in Jackson.

JPD Assistance Chief Lee Vance says the department is actively searching for clues in the case and are asking the public for their help.  "Were using every resource available to us to identify the vehicle and the suspects but so far we haven't been able to have any luck in locating either one," said Vance.

The security video of the crime may provide the best clues in the murder.  The shooter and his accomplice were both black males, their car very distinctive, an older green Chevy, with a green body and a white hood.

Vance says, "The citizens of this city aren't going to tolerate it and the police department is going to do everything we can to get these individuals into custody."

Police say at least two rewards have been offered up by Jackson business owners in addition to a Crime Stoppers reward for information that leads to an arrest in the case.  If you have any tips that could help call Crime Stoppers at 601-355-8477, or Jackson Police at 601-960-1234.
