Police have arrested a third person suspected in a shooting and robbery in which a man told police he believed his three assailants had followed him home.

Terrance J. Coleman, 30, was being held on bonds of $1 million Thursday at the Jackson County jail.

Police arrested him Wednesday on charges of armed robbery and aggravated assault.

Two others have been arrested in the Nov. 27 holdup at Eastwood Townhomes on Orchard Road. Investigators wanted information on those arrests withheld until the third person was in custody, police Lt. Doug Adams said.

The man was found shot in the side about 3 a.m. in the housing-complex parking lot. He was taken to a hospital. Police have said his wound was not life-threatening.

The man told police he had left the McDonald’s restaurant in Moss Point and was getting out of his car at the housing complex when two men got into the back seat, according to the initial report.

The wounded man, a 20-year-old, at first told police he didn’t want to press charges.

“We came up with additional information on the incident and the victim changed his mind,” Adams said.
