A Starkville teen is facing kidnapping charges after allegedly holding two people at gunpoint at a Starkville apartment complex this week.

Officers with the Starkville Police Department arrested 14-year-old Jaquiores Boyd with help from the U.S. Marshal Task Force on Tuesday for the two kidnapping warrants.

SPD says the incident occurred at Brooksville Garden apartments in the 300 block of Everglade Avenue on Monday.

While few details are known about the suspected kidnapping at this time, Boyd is accused of holding two people against their will at gunpoint.

SPD Public Information Officer Brandon Lovelady said Boyd is in the Oktibbeha County Jail with bond set at $100,000 for each kidnapping charge.

Boyd is scheduled for an initial appearance in Starkville Municipal Court on Wednesday at 2 p.m.
