The Jackson Police Department says 31-year-old Anthony Swift has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder. Police said 27-year-old Travontay Berry has been charged with unlawful possession of a weapon and tampering with evidence.
Brian Banes and Delandis Clark were killed April 28 as a graduation party broke up in downtown Jackson. Authorities said Berry fired a semi-automatic handgun into the air while he was standing in a crowd. Police allege Swift approached Banes and Clark and shot them multiple times.
