CLARKSDALE, Miss. (AP) - Bond has been set at $500,000 each for three men arrested in the fatal shooting of a security guard in Clarksdale.

Assistant Police Chief Robbie Linley tells The Clarksdale Press Register (https://bit.ly/1PTLu3Z ) that each of the three men is charged with murder. Linley says those arrested Friday were a 16-year-old juvenile, 20-year-old Jeremy Evans and 21-year-old Demarcus Bryant. They are being held in the local jail. It is unclear if they have attorneys.

Police say 59-year-old Finnis “Butch” Catledge, a security guard with Wood Security, was shot multiple times around 1 a.m. last Tuesday while working at Clarksdale Public Utilities’ guard post outside the power plant U.S. Highway 49 South.

Catledge was transported to North Mississippi Regional Medical Center in Clarksdale, where he died from his injuries.
