Two charged in June 6 shooting

NATCHEZ — Natchez Police arrested two young men and are searching for another man in connection with a June 6 shooting.

On Thursday, Jameco Davis, 16, was apprehended and booked on two counts of attempted murder, shooting into an occupied dwelling, and shooting into an occupied vehicle.

Just after 5 p.m. Friday, Karon Cade surrendered at the Natchez Police Department where he was booked on two counts of attempted murder and shooting into an occupied vehicle.

On Friday, police were actively seeking Omari Isaac, who is also wanted for two counts of attempted murder and shooting into an occupied vehicle in connection with the shooting and have identified additional suspects for whom they are in the process of obtaining arrest warrants, law officials said.

On June 6, officers of the Natchez Police Department responded to a report of shots being fired in the area of 601 Old Washington Road and found a damaged, parked 2004 Nissan in front of an apartment building with a possible bullet hole in the front windshield.

While officers were at the scene, they were notified of two gunshot victims at Merit Health Natchez. One of the victims was treated locally and released. The other victim was transported to the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson.

Investigators said they believe several individuals were involved in the shooting, some whom they have identified and have served arrest warrants for, including Davis and Cade.

“Anyone caught harboring or aiding the fugitives could be subject to criminal charges,” officials stated in a Friday news release. “The Natchez Police Department is actively seeking the community’s assistance. If anyone has information on this case as well as any additional unresolved cases … please come forward and contact the Natchez Police Department.”
