Brookhaven men wanted in Hazlehurst nightclub shooting surrender to police
Two suspects wanted in the fatal shooting at a Hazlehurst nightclub last week turned themselves in to law enforcement Friday night.
Brookhaven Police Chief Kenneth Collins said Dariendejuan “Daquan” Fells, 23, of 512 McCormick Court, surrendered at the Lincoln County jail about 10:30 p.m. and shortly after, Odarius Black, 21, of 523 South Turner, surrendered himself at the police department.
The Brookhaven men are charged with murder in the shooting death of Jonathan Miller, 26, of Hazlehurst, who was killed at Tootsie’s Spot on Monticello Street in Hazlehurst Sunday.
Seven other individuals were injured in the shooting.
Collins said Fells’ and Black’s families convinced the pair to surrender.
“Family members talked to them and helped to make them turn themselves in,” he said.
The men will be transferred to Copiah County jail.
