A ninth person has been arrested in connection with the shooting deaths of two Mississippi police officers who were killed during a traffic stop earlier this month, authorities said, reports the Associated Press.

Spokesman Warren Strain with the Mississippi Department of Public Safety said in a statement Wednesday night that 25-year-old Brodrick Kendell Varnado of Hattiesburg was arrested and charged with accessory after the fact of capital murder.

No further details about the allegations against Varnado were immediately available.
