A law enforcement official says three people have been arrested and two of them have been charged with capital murder in the fatal shootings of two Mississippi police officers during a weekend traffic stop in Hattiesburg.
Marvin Banks, 29, and 22-year-old Joanie Calloway have each been charged with two counts of capital murder, and Banks’ 26-year-old brother, Curtis Banks, has been charged with two counts of accessory after the fact of capital murder.
Dead at their hands following a routine traffic stop, police say, were 25-year-old rookie cop Liquori Tate and his fellow officer Benjamin Deen, 34.
According to Mississippi Department of Public Safety spokesperson Warren Strain, Marvin Banks also faced other charges.
Strain says officers arrested the three Hattiesburg residents at different locations overnight without resistance following Saturday night’s fatal shooting.
According to WDAM, Marvin Banks was picked up by police around 1am early Sunday at the Northgate Inn hotel in Hattiesburg.
Hours later, around 3am, his brother Curtis was apprehended at Plantation Place apartment complex.
Both Marvin and Curtis Banks reside close to the scene of the shootings in Hattiesburg, where each also has a history of criminal offenses.
