Two Arrested In Thursday Greenville Murder

Chicot Memorial

GREENVILLE, MS (Ben Caxton) — A 33-year-old man was shot to death in downtown Greenville late Wednesday morning. Police responded to a call at 8th and Alexander Streets at about 11:15 AM. Upon arrival, they discovered an unoccupied black sedan that had rolled across the street and struck a utility pole. They were told by witnesses that two men had shot at the moving car, hitting the driver. The victim had already been transported by private car to the hospital by the time police arrived. Delta Regional Medical Center said the victim died of his injuries a short time later. Greenville Police Department’s Criminal Investigation later arrested and charged 44-year-old Bill Luster and his 27-year-old nephew Samuel Luster with murder. Investigators made contact with family members of Samuel and he came to the police headquarters at 216 Main Street where he was taken into custody. Bill Luster was arrested in the 600 block of Nelson without incident as the Greenville Police Department was actively searching for him. Both suspects have been charged with murder and other charges may follow. Police believe the incident is related to Saturday night’s triple shooting on Persimmons Street, but investigators are still following leads to confirm. No bond has been set at this time.

  1. Please get your facts straight before publishing.First of all it didnt happen downtown. Second the vehicle was occupied. And third he was transported by ambulance. SMh

  2. You should contact Assistant Chief Michael Merchant of the Greenville Police Department to correct their official report. Their direct quote in the statement says “Upon arrival, they located a black sedan unoccupied and were advised the victim had been transported to the hospital in a personal car.”
