October 25, 2016

On October 24, 2016 at approximately 4:19 pm, Tishomingo 911 notified the Tishomingo Sheriff’s Department of a shooting that had occurred in the Dennis area. The caller stated that the Victim was at a residence, 101 CR 87, while the shooter was still at a residence, on CR 75. Tishomingo 911 also advised that paramedics would be on standby in the area of CR 87and CR 75 waiting for law enforcement to clear the scene.

Tishomingo Sheriff’s deputies arrived in the area and split up. Some deputies went to the residence on CR 87 where the Victim was located and the others went to the residence on CR 75 where the shooter was last known to be at. Deputies were able to clear the scene and let the paramedics come in to treat the Victim. The Victim, who received a gun-shot wound to the upper right leg and was deemed a non-life threating injury, refused any care which was offered by the paramedics and stated he, the Victim, would go to the hospital himself.

The shooter was located at the residence on CR 75 and was determined that the entire incident was involving a FAMILY DISTURBANCE. Due to the preliminary investigation at the scene, it was determined to allow this incident to be reviewed by the District Attorney’s Office to see if any further investigations / indictments need to be made. Statements were taken from both the Victim, the alleged Suspect, and an eye-witness. This remains under further investigation.
