Three arrests have been made following the death of a Hattiesburg teenager. 

Last Friday, 19-year-old Jack Eagan Kelly, of Louisiana, was dropped off to a AAA Ambulance at Clark’s service station on Highway 49 just before midnight, according to the Hattiesburg PD. Kelly was taken to a hospital, but died shortly after.  No exact cause of death for Kelly has been released at this time. 

After an investigation was opened, officials determined that the initial crime scene was a home on Blue Gable Road, and they began to look at the case as a homicide connected to a drug deal.

So far, four suspects have been identified and three have been arrested.
