On Thursday, around 10:23 p.m., Jackson police were called to the Westwood Apartments at 3150 Robinson Road regarding a shooting. When police arrived, they found that four people had been shot during an alleged robbery.
Police identified the victims in the attempted robbery and shootout as 25-year-old Dominique Garrett, 23-year-old Jessie Kelly and 21-year-old Jacarin Robinson. Garrett was transported from the scene in serious condition.
Two of the men died at the apartment Thursday night and a third person died Friday morning at Merit Health.
The victims were in an apartment playing dominoes when at least three people came inside. Police said they did not force themselves inside but gained "unforced entry" into the apartment.
At least two of the intruders were armed with a gun and demanded the people inside the apartment to give up their belongings.
The people in the apartment also had guns and exchanged gunfire with the intruders.
