JACKSON, Tenn. — The Jackson Police Department confirms murder suspect Randall Lee Rose is in custody.

JPD officers, along with the U.S. Marshals, arrested Rose at approximately 9 a.m. Wednesday morning at the former Bruce Hardwood Flooring Company on Williams Street, according to a separate news release from the U.S. Marshals Service.
Marshals say he was in possession of a handgun believed to have been taken during a recent burglary.
