Craig Spivey killed, Eric Lindsey injured

Cadarro Taylor (l) and Lashaun Taylor (r) face murder charges stemming from a shooting Tuesday morning.

Two suspects face charges in a shooting that left one person dead and another injured on Tuesday.

Hinds County deputies tell WLBT that 27-year-old Lashaun Taylor and 17-year-old Cadarro Taylor surrendered on Wednesday and were turned over to Jackson police.

Jackson police have identified the dead man as 34-year-old Craig Spivey. The second victim, Eric Lindsey, was hospitalized, Jackson police spokeswoman Colendula Green says.

The shootings took place in the Georgetown neighborhood. County Supervisor Kenneth Stokes says witnesses told him the shooting started when Spivey and Lindsey allegedly jumped out of a truck and started firing rounds at a house on Erie Street.

Officers responded to the shooting around 11:45 a.m. and found two people suffering from gunshot wounds, Green says.
