Meridian Police investigates shooting

May 30, 2019

Meridian Police are searching for the suspect in connection to a double homicide.



It happened around 7:30 last night near the 22 hundred block of 44th Avenue, authorities say when police arrived to the scene they found a body lying in the street and another body inside of a car--both with multiple gunshot wounds.  

The victims have been identified as 27-year-old Tailimon Edwards and 32-year-old Edward Carpenter.  

Both were pronounced dead at the scene.  


“We do have persons of interest that we’re looking to speak with in regard to this incident, also it appears that this may have been some type of attempted robbery and that the individuals who were attempting to robbery also committed the assault or were in the back seat of the vehicle.” Said Chief Benny Dubose.
