JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - A 19-year-old man has been charged in the death of an auto parts store employee in Jackson.

Multiple media outlets report Jackson Police Department spokesman Tyree Jones says Joshua Dukes is charged with one count of capital murder in the death of 36-year-old Broderick Smith.

Smith was shot multiple times during a robbery while working at O’Reilly’s Auto Parts store on Nov. 8, 2015. Jones says Smith was identified as one of the suspects involved in the incident.

Dukes is currently being held at the Hinds County Detention Center on three additional counts of capital murder, stemming from his alleged involvement in two separate shooting deaths and robberies in March and February of this year.

Authorities are asking for the public’s help to identify the second suspect in Smith’s death.
