MARTINSVILLE, VA – A third suspect has been arrested in connection with a deadly shooting at a Martinsville restaurant in February.


21-year-old Jamel Turner, of Collinsville, was charged with two counts of aggravated malicious wounding, use of firearm in committing a felony, and shooting in a public place resulting in injury.


According to court records, Turner was a shooter who was also hit by gunfire during the incident.


24-year-old Jamal Jenkins, of Collinsville, and 20-year-old Rosario Eggleston, of Martinsville, were also charged in connection with two shooting deaths.
