3 Teens Charged With Capital Murder After Allegedly Killing 'Neighborhood Legend' at Gas Station

Share

Three teens have been arrested in connection with the shooting death of a 60-year-old man who was working as a security guard at a gas station convenience store.

Roy Love, 60, was  “just doing his job,” when he was gunned down early Monday, Jackson, Mississippi, Police Chief Joseph Wade stated, according to WAPT-TV.

Love was working at the M&M Food Mart when at about 1:30 a.m. Monday he told three teenagers to leave the property.

“They attacked him, took his weapon and fired on him with their weapon,” Wade said Monday.

“This was very bold,” Wade said, referencing surveillance video.

Kadaris Cohen, 16, Trent Wooten and Zaylon Norton, both 17, were arrested and charged with capital murder, Wade said, according to WLBT-TV.

Love was mourned by residents of the neighborhood where the attack took place.

“I can’t believe it, man,” Tony Williams, who said he spoke to Love hours before the killing.

“He was well known in the neighborhood, a neighborhood legend. He came to work every day. He stayed in the area. All the people know him. [He is] a great guy. It’s mind-blowing. I was just here last night talking to him,” he said.

“We joked, [and] laughed. I just hate to see him gone. He will be missed,” he said.


“This man gets up every day and comes to work, and for them to try and take his little gun from him, that’s just sad,” Jackie Kitchens, who knew Love, said.

“He sees us pull up out here. If it’s women, he’s going to come out here to make sure we’re in there safe and come back to our cars safe,” she said.

“It was a robbery,” Wade said, according to the Clarion-Ledger.

“Based on the information we got, they were trying to steal the security guard’s gun, and they succeeded. They got it. And they took his life in the process. Unbelievable,” he said.

Wade said bond has been denied for the three suspects.


A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:

 

“We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” Those 12 words have been stuck in my head since I first read them. 

 

Former Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn recently made that comment to Floyd Brown, founder of The Western Journal. 

 

And if the leftists and the elites get their way, that’s exactly what will happen — no real election, no real choice for the Electoral College, and no real say for the American people. 

 

The Western Journal is fighting to keep that from happening, but we can’t do it alone.

 

We work tirelessly to expose the lying leftist media and the corrupt America-hating elites.

 

But Big Tech’s stranglehold is now so tight that without help from you, we will not be able to continue the fight. 

 

The 2024 election is literally the most important election for every living American. We have to unite and fight for our country, otherwise we will lose it. And if we lose the America we love in 2024, we’ll lose it for good. Can we count on you to help? 

 

With you we will be able to field journalists, do more investigative work, expose more corruption, and get desperately needed truth to millions of Americans. 

 

We can do this only with your help. Please don’t wait one minute. Donate right now.

 

Thank you for reading,

Josh Manning
