Murder suspect captured in JDC

A murder suspect was captured in Jefferson Davis County last week by local authorities.

Jordan Jamal Brinson was arrested at a trailer on Clem Road after Jefferson Davis County Deputies received a phone call alerting them to Brinson’s whereabouts.

Brinson is a suspect in the murder of Patrick Hubbard Jr. that took place on June 22 in Simpson County.

Simpson County E911 received a call from Patrick Hubbard that his son, 18-year-old Patrick Hubbard Jr. had been shot and was discovered lying outside his vehicle on the North side of Old Tower Road in Simpson County.

Simpson County Deputies learned that Brinson was a suspect in the theft of a pistol from a family member earlier that day, and that Brinson may have been with Patrick Hubbard Jr. at the time of the shooting.

A search of the immediate area was conducted by Simpson County Deputies and the Rankin County Sheriff’s Department. Jefferson Davis County authorities were alerted of the situation shortly thereafter.
