LAUREL, Miss. -  LAUREL POLICE NOW HAVE FOUR PEOPLE IN CUSTODY.... IN CONNECTION WITH THE SOUTH PARK VILLAGE MURDER THAT HAPPENED LAST THURSDAY.

Frankie Hosey, Brittany Smith and Joshua McGill were arrested Thursday. Terrance Roberts turned himself into police Friday.

Smith, McGill and Roberts are charged with murder, shooting into an occupied dwelling, and drive by shooting.

Hosey is charged with accessory before the fact of drive by shooting, accessory before the facto of shooting into a dwelling, and ex-con in possession of firearm.

Friends of the victim, 23-year-old Douglas McGruder said his life was cut too short.

"I grew up with this guy from a baby to a grown man," said Kenneth Rogers, a close friend.

"He always stayed positive," said Martin Page, another friend.

Police said they received a phone call November 7 that several shots had been fired at apartment '15 A' in South Park Village.

"They found an individual who had been shot in the chest," said Sgt. Earl Reed of Laurel Police.

Sgt. Reed said the suspects were driving by the complex in a car and fired at least 15 rounds at the apartment.

"There were two shooters in the car," he said.

Police said the  alleged shooters are McGill and Roberts who were riding in the back seat. Smith was driving, Reed said.

"She is not cooperating so we spoke with the D.A. and we were advised to charge her with murder also," he said.

Police are not releasing a motive at this time. Reed said this is Laurel's third homicide this year.
