Shooting suspects get high bonds

NATCHEZ — Two suspects in a June 6 shooting at the Holiday Apartments were arraigned in Natchez Municipal Court Tuesday and both received high bonds, officials said.

Jameco Davis, 16, who faces two counts of attempted murder, shooting into an occupied dwelling and shooting into an occupied vehicle, is being held on a $700,000 bond.

Karon Cade, who faces two counts of attempted murder and shooting into an occupied vehicle, is being held on a $600,000 bond.

The bonds were ordered by Natchez Municipal Court Judge Lisa Dale, said Walter Armstrong, Natchez chief of police.

Armstrong said police are still searching for a third suspect Omari Isaac, 21, who is also wanted for two counts of attempted murder and shooting into an occupied vehicle in connection with the shooting.

The charges are in connection to a June 6 incident in which 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.

Armstrong said anyone caught harboring or aiding Isaac could be subject to criminal charges and will be brought in with the suspect.

Armstrong said anyone with information on Isaac’s location should contact the Natchez Police Department at 601-445-5565 or call Crime Stoppers at 601-443-5000.

“Isaac should be considered armed and dangerous,” Armstrong said.
