GREENVILLE, Miss. (AP) - A Greenville man is behind bars on bond after being charged with capital murder, attempted armed robbery and conspiracy to commit armed robbery.

Municipal Court Judge Michael Prewitt set a $2 million bond Friday for Malik Flowers, who is accused in the Wednesday shooting death of 20-year-old Brandon Wooten. Police say Wooten’s death may have stemmed from an alleged drug deal gone wrong. It was the city’s second homicide of the year.

Assistant Police Chief Michael Merchant tells The Delta Democrat-Times (https://bit.ly/1KNsB0E ) that police are still looking for 20-year-old Devonte McCray and a 17-year-old suspect, who will face charges as an adult in the case.

Arrest warrants for those two were issued Thursday, the same day Flowers was arrested.
