As previously reported, two men were found dead from gunshot wounds on Locksley Drive in Jackson Monday evening.

Authorities said David Wilburn, 23, and Eric Washington, 27, were both shot multiple times and died at or near the scene.

Now police say there are two more homicides Tuesday.

Antwain Smith, Jr. passed away after suffering fatal injuries following a Monday shooting. A woman was dropped off at Merit Health after being shot multiple times in the torso. Police say she was dead on arrival.

“These shootings are senseless,” stated Deputy Chief of Police Deric Hearn in a press release Tuesday. “We ask our citizens of Jackson to resolve their problems without guns.”
