The suspect accused of murdering two Brookhaven police officers in September 2018 has been indicted on two counts of capital murder.
26-year-old Marquis Flowers allegedly murdered Cpl. Zack Moak and Patrolman James White after the officers responded to a ‘shots fired’ call on North 6th Street in Brookhaven on September 29th, 2018.
Flowers appeared in a Lincoln County courtroom this morning and pled not guilty to the two counts of capital murder and one count of felon in possession of a firearm. During the hearing, prosecutors stated that they will be seeking the death penalty.
Flowers was shot and wounded during the 2018 exchange of gunfire. Following his release from the hospital, he has since been in MDOC custody.
At the time of the shooting, Flowers was on parole for a felony auto burglary conviction.
