One of 2 shooting suspects turns himself in; other still on loose
NATCHEZ — One of two suspects in a Wednesday afternoon shooting in Adams County turned himself in at the sheriff’s office on Friday afternoon, Adams County Sheriff Travis Patten said.
Terrence Flowers, 20, is in the custody of the sheriff’s office on a charge of attempted murder, Patten said.
The Adams County Sheriff’s Office and U.S. Marshals Service are still searching for the other suspect, Jamontae Davis, 17.
The shooting occurred near Old Country Club Road at approximately 3:30 p.m. Wednesday when a car pulled up next to a vehicle being driven by a woman with four juveniles inside and a person in the car began shooting into the woman’s vehicle.
The driver was shot in the bicep, and she drove herself to Natchez Fire Station No. 3 from where she was transported for medical treatment of the non-life-threatening gunshot wound, Patten said.
Authorities initially were searching for only Davis but early Friday, Patten said further investigation had led to Flowers being a suspect.
Davis has a warrant for his arrest on five counts of attempted murder, Patten said.
Patten said anyone with information on the case could contact the sheriff’s office by calling 911 in Adams County. People outside of Adams County, Patten said, should dial the sheriff’s office directly at 601-442-2752.
