Jackson police violent crimes investigators, with the assistance of the department's gang unit, identified suspects in the Sunday morning beating death of Antwan Brooks, of Denmark. Investigators developed the case and determined there was a large crowd of people at an apartment in the 50 block of Carolane Drive. Brooks was initially jumped from behind by three to four men within the crowd and was taken to the ground. Another eight to 10 more men joined in on the beating. During the attack, they took turns hitting and kicking Brooks. One of the men removed Brooks' shorts and threw them on a nearby basketball goal. Brooks had a cell phone that was taken during the attack. On Thursday, police presented their investigative findings to District Attorney General Jerry Woodall and asked him to convene a special grand jury. The grand jury met Friday morning and returned indictments on multiple suspects for first degree murder and felony murder. Beginning Friday afternoon and working through the evening, the Multi-Jurisdictional Violent Crime and Gang Task Force executed arrest warrants on those indicted. The task force arrested Terrell Reid, 29; Jonique Merriweather, 30; James Roberson, 27; Michael Anthony Smith, 22; Frank Clement Massengill, 34; and Byron Purdy, 33, all of Jackson. All six men are being held at the Madison County Jail with no bond. A formal arraignment and bond setting will be held in Madison County Circuit Court on a day to be determined by the court. The task force is comprised of local, county, state and federal agents with primary emphasis on the 26th and 28th Judicial Districts comprised of Henderson, Chester, Madison, Gibson, Haywood and Crockett counties. They are attempting to arrest others involved. Some of the suspects identified and arrested in Brooks' murder are documented members of the Gangster Disciple Street Gang, a.k.a. GD's, a.k.a. G's.
