The second suspect who was arrested in connection to the shooting death of Jackson State University student Jaylen Burns has been released.
21-year-old Jamison Kelly, Jr., was taken into custody five days after Burns was shot and killed at University Pointe Apartments on October 15. Kelly was charged with accessory after the fact and held at the Raymond Detention Center without bond.
Now, a judge has ruled that there is not enough probable cause to charge Kelly for any involvement in the crime.
The development comes three days after the alleged shooter, 19-year-old Joshua Brown, was released from jail due to surveillance footage surfacing of him being nearly 100 miles away from the scene at the reported time of the shooting.
Kelly was accused of driving Brown away from the scene of the crime following the shooting. The court has ruled that the evidence presented has been insufficient to connect him to Burns’ death.
Burns, a Chicago native and industrial technology major, is said to have been killed while trying to break up a fight.
