MADISON COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Officials say the suspect arrested in an officer-involved shooting and homicide Wednesday night was mistakenly released from the Hinds County Detention Center.

Hinds County Sheriff's officials say 26-year-old Chauncey Reed was released by mistake late Thursday.

Hinds County Investigators along with Jackson Police and U.S. Marshals were able to get Reed back in custody hours later and he was taken to the Madison County Detention Center. 

Sources say that Reed was captured in a home on Wildwood Circle a few hours after he was released from jail. 

Reed is charged with capital murder in the shooting death of his brother Elliot.

Police say he exchanged gunfire with a Jackson police officer during a traffic stop at the Valero gas station on Cooper Road Wednesday.

Reed is being held at the Madison County Detention Center without bond. 

This isn't the first time this year that an inmate has been mistakenly released by Hinds County. 

In February, they released robbery suspect Kenneth Lewis when a detention officer failed to see that Ridgeland police had a hold on him.
