JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Jackson Police have arrested and charged 25-year-old Terrance Longino in the shooting death of 26-year-old Lee Eric Evans. Longino was taken into custody by the US Marshal Service and he's been charged with murder.

According to Jackson police, Evans was found lying at the intersection of Central Street and Buena Vista Avenue with gunshot wounds around 10:00 Saturday morning.

Friends of the victim said they last saw him walking down the street moments before being gunned down.

"Right now, we don't know what led to this particular shooting," said Jackson police Sergeant Roderick Holmes. "We don't know if there was some type of altercation that transpired. The loss of someone's life is always a loss for the entire community. No time anyone is shot or killed for that matter, is a win-win for the community." 

Friends of the victim described him as kind, playful, and generous--not someone they ever imagined would be shot to death in his own neighborhood.

"As always, we stress for people to find some other avenue to address their problems and find a non-violent way to solve those problems," added Sergeant Holmes. "And if for some reason that can't happen, then both parties need to just part ways until they can figure it out. Nobody needs to lose their life to something as senseless as this." 

This is an ongoing investigating and anyone with additional information is asked to contact Jackson police at 601-960-1234 or CrimeStoppers at 601-355-8477(TIPS).
