Three charged with assault
By SUE WATSON
Three suspects are under arrest and in the Marshall County Jail following a shooting incident in the Woodsdale Cove area off Cayce Road October 13.
Sheriff Kenny Dickerson said two men were shot, one in the leg and a second in the back, and drove themselves out of the area where his deputies and investigators, members of the Byhalia and Holly Springs police departments and the Mississippi Highway Patrol worked the case.
One victim was transported to the DeSoto Baptist Hospital and the other to the Memphis Med and only the one at the Med remained in the hospital Tuesday.
In jail and held under $250,000 bond each and charged with two counts each of aggravated assault are suspects Billy Andrew Scruggs, 20, of 5684 Highway 178 , Victoria; Dewayne Martel Campbell, 21, of 4019 Highway 178 West, Holly Springs; and Jeremy Deonta McFadden, 17, of 185 Woodward Avenue, Building 16, Apartment 4, Holly Springs, he said.
Dickerson said the two victims who fled the Woodsdale Cove area where they were shot made contact with law enforcement at the Exxon Station in Byhalia and were transported to the hospital. Before going to the hospital, one victim was able to talk to investigators and provide information regarding the suspects involved in the shootings.
All three suspects were later identified and with their cooperation turned themselves in shortly thereafter at the Marshall County Sheriff's Department.
Investigators believe the shootings resulted from a planned robbery that went bad, Dickerson said.
He expressed appreciation for the help provided by the Byhalia and Holly Springs police departments and the Highway Patrol which helped close the case quickly.
