MUSKEGON, Mich. (WOOD) — A man is being charged with the murders of two men in Muskegon in 2013.
Jamel Quinney is charged with two counts of open murder in the deaths of Dupree Johnson and Ja’Colby Brown.
They were killed at a shootout at the Elks Charity Lodge on Ottawa Street on Sept. 22, 2013. Additionally, a woman named Jalisa Love died after she was hit by a vehicle trying to leave the scene. At least 4 other people were also hurt.
The Charity Lodge was shut down following the shooting has hasn’t reopened since.
“The last couple years, before this happened, it had really gone downhill. The crowd over there, just unruly. Leaving trash everywhere,” said Kevin Kooi, who works across the street from the lodge.
Quinney already pleaded no contest to carrying a concealed weapon and lying to police in July 2014 in connection to the case. He has been in jail for several months.
Prosecutors say he was the catalyst of everything that happened the night Johnson, Brown and Love were killed.
He’s being held without bond and is expected back in court for a probable cause hearing next week.
Another man, Lamarcus Calvin, has already been convicted of failing to stop at the scene of an accident in connection to Love’s death.
