2 dead and a young girl behind bars

BROOKHAVEN, Miss.- A robbery gone wrong leaves two men dead and a 17-year-old girl in the lock up. 

Brookhaven police say that 17 year old Marionne Keys is being charged with conspiracy to robbery and conspiracy to commit murder. Jaquarius Jones, 17, and Julian Gayten, 22, shot each other but it is not clear at this time who fired first.

Police say Keys and Jones were conspiring to rob Gayten and then kill him when it was over. There were texts between Keys and both men.

Police Chief Bobby Bell says the plan was for Keys to go and distract Gayten while Jones broke in with a gun and robbed him. When Gayten heard breaking glass he grabbed a gun and ran to the hall. Shots were fired and bot men were hit.

Police were alerted when Jones collapsed in the street around 7 a.m. Thursday morning in front of the house.
