Two arrested after bullets fly in city

NATCHEZ — Bullets were sprayed at a house and a car after an ongoing altercation between two men grew violent early Thursday morning.

Natchez Police Department officers responded to a report of shots being fired at 1:34 a.m. Thursday at 13 Old Wilson Lane, near West Stiers Lane.

When officers arrived, the resident of the house, Steven Bindon, said a man with whom he has had an ongoing altercation had just fired several bullets at him and into his house.

Bindon told police Vashion Grinnell, 35, 39-A Marin Ave., drove to his house, got out of his car and shot approximately 12 bullets at him while he stood on his porch, a report said.

Bindon’s wife, Nikita Bindon, reportedly heard the shots and called 911.

Seven .40-caliber shell casings were found at the scene where the suspect was reportedly standing by his car.

NPD officers arrested Grinnell at approximately 4 a.m. for aggravated assault/extreme indifference to human life.

After police spoke with Bindon and his wife at the scene, they followed a trail of car fluid to 17 New St., where they found Grinnell’s car unoccupied.

The rear window of Grinnell’s car was shattered, the left, front tire was flat and approximately seven bullet holes were scattered on the car. The car was towed to the police department.

Police discovered three rifle cartridge casings near the location where Bindon said he was standing, Natchez Police Chief Mike Mullins said.

Mullins said police cannot prove the shell casings found at Bindon’s house are connected to the bullet holes in Grinnell’s car without lab work.

Mullins said officers acquired a search warrant for Bindon’s residence and recovered one pistol, two shotguns and three rifles. Bindon was not at his residence during the search. Since Bindon, 23, 13 Old Wilson Lane, is a convicted felon, he is wanted on charges of possession of a weapon by a convicted felon.

Bindon reportedly told police Grinnell called him Wednesday on the phone and said he was going to kill Bindon for assaulting Grinnell’s sister.

Mullins said anyone with information leading to the arrest of Bindon should call Crime Stoppers at 601-442-5000.
