Two more men arrested by Mississippi police

Two others were arrested after a Mississippi police officer was shot down outside his police station.

Sherison County Sheriff Troy Peterson tells WLOX-TV that both men were arrested on Wednesday for capital murder.

20-year-old Dalentez Brice and 21-year-old Joshua Kovach are being held without attachment. It was not immediately known if there were lawyers who could be approached for comment.

Police officer Robert McKeithen (muh-KEETH-en) was shot several times on Sunday in the police station parking lot.

19-year-old Darian (DEHR-uhn) Atkinson is accused of killing him.

Atkinson's 21-year-old brother, Davian Atkinson, is also charged as an accessory. Authorities say he drove his brother to Wiggins after the murder and had him phoned.
