The Oxford Police Department did not release details on how Robertson was an accessory.

Keith Lamont Harmon Jr., 19, of Batesville, was arrested on Sunday and charged with first-degree murder in Adams’ death.

A motive for the shooting has not been released by investigators.

Adams was shot at The Links apartments at about 2 a.m. on Saturday. He was taken to Baptist Memorial Hospital-North Mississippi where he was stabilized and then transported to the North Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo; however, he died shortly after from his injuries.

Adams graduated in May from the University of Mississippi with a degree in mechanical engineering. 

According to a family member, funeral services have not yet been planned for Adams pending an autopsy.
