After receiving multiple calls of gunshots, officers arrived at the scene to find Jefferson “laying on the sidewalk suffering from puncture wounds,” according to a SLMPD media statement to the Daily Caller. Jefferson was “pronounced deceased at the scene” by emergency responders, according to the statement.

According to the police statement shared with the Caller, the Circuit Attorney’s Office charged both Holmes and Young with “Murder 1st Degree” and “Armed Criminal Action.” Holmes was additionally charged with “Unlawful Possession of a Firearm,” the statement read. Both Holmes and Young remain in custody with no bond allowed, the statement added.

The vehicle present at the scene was later located with a firearm and ammunition matching the casings found near the scene, according to BNN Breaking. The alleged attack was reportedly the result of a feud between Jefferson and the two men indicted, according to investigators.
