JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

After a press conference where Chief Lee Vance discussed Joshua Dukes and recent murder charges, he described him using the term "serial killer".

Dukes has been charged with 4 counts of capital murder.

The most recent murder charge was the November 2015 death of an O'Reilly's Auto Parts employee.

Commander Tyree Jones says 19-year-old Joshua Dukes is charged with one count of capital murder in the death of 36-year-old Brodrick Smith.

Dukes is currently being held at the Hinds County Detention Center on three additional counts of capital murder, stemming from his alleged involvement in the shooting deaths and robberies of Daniel Omar Gomez and Eli Nunez on March 5 on Westhaven Blvd., and for his alleged involvement in the shooting death and robbery of 85-year-old James Hankins on February 13 on McClure Rd.

During the course of the investigation, Robbery/Homicide Detectives developed and identified Dukes as one of the suspects involved in the incident, Commander Jones said.

Jones says the case is still under investigation and the Jackson Police Department needs the public’s assistance with identifying the second suspect involved in the incident.

Officials say Dukes will appear in Municipal Court on Monday for his initial appearance. 

Anyone with any information regarding this investigation is urged to contact the Jackson Police Department at 601-960-1234 or 601-355-TIPS (8477).

Details on Duke's previous murder charges:

Westhaven Blvd, March 5, 2015 - Double Homicide  

McCleur Road, February 15, 2015 - Homicide 

Livingston Road, November 19, 2015
