Man charged as accomplice to murder

NATCHEZ — A Natchez man wanted for accessory to murder in connection to a March shooting in a gas station parking lot was arrested Thursday after remaining at large for months.

Police arrested 29-year-old Terrance Michael Brooks for accessory before the fact, charging him as an accomplice to the murder of 27-year-old Rodrique Watson in the parking lot of a Zipy convenience store on Old Washington Road, Natchez Police Chief Walter Armstrong said. Authorities said Watson was struck multiple times by gunfire.

Armstrong said Brooks was in the truck that pulled up at the scene and from which the shots came, though investigators do not believe he is the one who pulled the trigger.

Police charged 24-year-old Da’Larren White with murder the day after the shooting, which police say was started by some sort of feud between the two men. White was still being held at the Adams County Jail Thursday night on a $850,000 bond.

Brooks fled from the scene following the killing, Armstrong said. After police identified Brooks through an investigation, they were unable to find him locally and registered his name with the National Crime Information Center.

A long way from home, Brooks was detained by authorities on June 21 in Wisconsin and arrived back in Natchez Thursday evening following extradition and was booked at approximately 4:45 p.m., Armstrong said.

Police then transferred Brooks to the Adams County Jail, where he remained Thursday night without bond pending arraignment.
