The Marshall Police Department said they were notified of a person lying in the roadway at the 1800 block of Alexander Street on June 7, 2023 at around 1:30 a.m. When officers arrived at the scene, they found a 16-year-old dead of a single gunshot wound.

Authorities charged Jarvis Gill, 27, with murder of the teen on Tuesday and is being held on a $500,000 bond at the Harrison County Jail.

An investigation to the death revealed that the teen was lying in the road for more than an hour and a half before police were called. Officials also said people drove around the body and took photos and videos of the body in the roadway.

In August 2023, Tyra Valentine, 24, Diamond Roach, 32, and Alexander Morrison, 50, all of Marshall, were charged with failure to report human remains.

Two juveniles were also charged with engaging in organized criminal activity for robbery.
