As of Saturday afternoon, multiple law enforcement agencies are still investigating the circumstances and evidence surrounding Friday morning's attempted robbery that resulted in the death of Paul's Jewelry store owner Jamie Iverson.
According to Indianola Police Investigator Irish Johnson, the suspects have not been apprehended, but they are unrelentingly pursuing the evidence at hand, he said.
They have been interviewing witnesses, reviewing store surveillance footage and video footage from surrounding businesses.
Johnson said immediately after getting the call on Friday, he contacted the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation, the Mississippi division of Alcohol Tobacco & Firearms and the U.S. Marshals, who were on scene in under an hour.
The Sunflower County Sheriff's Department was also on hand to assist.
Johnson has confirmed that two people entered the store after crossing the street from the alleyway between the former A-Z Beauty Supply store and The Crown Restaurant and left out running in the same direction.
Investigators were also able to determine that the perpetrators left the area in a black BMW.
According to Johnson, both suspects had on masks. One was dressed in a dark-colored hoodie and the other had a scarf on his head.
He declined to give any further details, citing that the incident is still under investigation and they do not want to disclose any pertinent information that might hinder the chances of apprehending the suspects.
Iverson was reportedly in the store alone shortly before 11 a.m. Friday morning when the two men entered.
Police are still asking that anyone who may have seen or heard anything come forward, because the information could be pertinent to their investigation.
Members of the community have been very active on social media expressing their condolences to the family and their love and admiration for Iverson as a friend and highly-adored member of the community.
