Two face charges in drive-by shooting
By SUE WATSON
Two people have been charged in connection with a drive-by shooting Saturday at Hill Top Grocery (formerly Davis and Son’s Grocery) in Chulahoma, according to sheriff Kenny Dickerson.
The shooting into the store at a clerk occurred about 6 p.m. June 5, the sheriff said.
The incident started when suspect Keith Martell Guy, 24, of 665 Martin Luther King Drive, Holly Springs, got into an argument with the store clerk, the sheriff said. Guy allegedly left the store, drove away, returned and shot into the store on a drive-by, attempting to do bodily harm to the clerk, then fled in the car at a high rate of speed, Dickerson said.
He fled along Highway 4 West into Tate County and was later stopped by Tate County sheriff’s deputies at the intersection of Highway 4 and Interstate 55.
A second suspect in the incident, Shamika Harris, 34, of 5600 Sweet Gum Road, Bartlett, Tenn., who was a passenger in the vehicle with Guy, was also arrested.
The two suspects were returned to Marshall County jail where Guy is being held under $100,000 bond and charged with a drive-by shooting. Harris was charged with accessory after the fact and remained in jail under $2,500 bond, Dickerson said.
A search by officers of Marshall and Tate counties was conducted Monday along Highway 4 West and a weapon believed to have been used in the drive-by shooting was found near the side of the highway near Senatobia, Dickerson said.
