(WJBK) -

For the first time, the faces of all three men connected to the murder of a CVS security guard are revealed.

Jeremy Jackson, Ronnie Anderson Williams and Jamare Rucker of Detroit all face various charges after the carjacking of three different women and the death of Courtney Meeks.

The trio is alleged to have first stolen a woman's purse and car keys in the 17,000 block of Hartwell on February 26, and prosecutors say when that car didn't start they all left the area and Williams decided to go home.
 
Investigators say Jackson and Rucker then continued on to the CVS store on Schaefer Highway where they tried to carjack two other women. We're told Meeks, who was dressed in his security guard uniform, learned what was going on and rushed to help. The 24-year old, with hopes of becoming a police officer, died from a single gunshot wound to the neck.
 
Investigators say Rucker and Jackson took off from the scene, later abandoning the car and hid out in Williams' home.

In a statement, Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy described Meeks as the quintessential Good Samaritan. She says her thoughts and prayers continue to go out to his family. Worthy also says she hopes we can all learn from his example and continue to work hard to help and support those who live, work and play in the city of Detroit.
 
The men return to court on March 13th. A judge denied the bond for Jackson and Rucker. He set Williams' at $250,000.
