Detectives then followed a lead to the vicinity of Ohio Street and California Avenue, where 29-year-old Reshawn Jones was taken into custody.

“The suspect was Mirandized and he confessed to the stabbing of the victim,” According to Deputy Chief Hearn’s press release. “The motive given was ‘homosexual gestures.’ This homicide is another senseless act of violence in the city of Jackson that are acts of violence between people who have some sort of previous association with each other.”
