3 in custody in Detroit CVS security guard's deadly shooting

Courtney Meeks died Feb. 26 trying to help carjacking victims


Detroit police say they now have three people in custody, including one who has made a confession, in connection with a carjacking and shooting that left a security guard dead.

Courtney Meeks was killed Feb. 26 while on duty at a CVS store on Schaefer.

He was shot when he confronted three men who were carjacking a mother, her young son and another family member.

Police Chief James Craig said a Crime Stoppers tip led them to the first suspect. From there, through the execution of a search warrant, they took the second suspect into custody.

Craig said the second suspect has made a "full confession."

The suspects' names are not yet being released until they are charged.

On Wednesday afternoon, Craig said police were still on the hunt for a third person, 20-year-old Jamare Lanell Rucker.

"He should be considered armed and dangerous," Craig said. "Jamare needs to turn himself in, but I anticipate he'll be arrested soon."

Rucker was taken into custody just hours later.
