DETROIT -

Three men are facing charges in the fatal shooting of a security guard in a Detroit parking lot.

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy on Friday identified the suspects as 24-year-old Jeremy Jackson, 26-year-old Ronnie Anderson-Williams and 20-year-old Jamare Rucker.

The three are accused of firing shots at security guard Courtney Meeks when he confronted them in the parking lot of a CVS store in the 16900 block of Schaefer on Feb. 26.

Meeks, 24, who was on duty at the store, was responding to the cries for help from a mother, her young son and another family member who were allegedly being carjacked by the suspects at gunpoint.

Meeks died from a single gunshot wound to the neck.

Worthy said the suspects got away with the victim’s car, but later abandoned it and went into hiding.

Detroit Police Chief James Craig said a tip from Crime Stoppers led them to the suspects, including one who made a “full confession.”

Additionally, Worthy said the three are also facing charges for trying to carjack a woman before Meek’s death. They allegedly robbed a woman in the 17100 block of Hartwell Street, but her car wouldn’t start. Worthy said Anderson-Williams then left the group and went home.

The three are scheduled to be arraigned later Friday.
