Police seek murder suspect
Police are looking for Jeremy McGauyhey, 33, in connection with the murder of a Holly Springs man and possible shooting of a second man, according to chief Robert Pearson.
An arrest warrant has been issued for McGauyhey, he said, on an open charge of murder.
The shooting, a second one in less than two weeks in the city, took place Monday, April 25, at approximately 2:50 a.m. in the parking lot of the Bearcat Sports Bar and Holly Inn Motel at 360 Highway 178 West (Martin Luther King Drive), Pearson said.
Three charged in theft
Three suspects have been charged with copper wire theft and one suspect is at large, according to sheriff Kenny Dickerson.
The three individuals were arrested by Marshall County sheriff’s deputies and investigators April 19 and April 20 and charged with burglary of a commercial building. Two of those three suspects turned themselves in to authorities and made bond. A fourth suspect has been identified and an arrest warrant and BOLO (Be On Look Out) have been issued on the National Crime Information Center. Shelby County Safe Streets Task Force and Memphis police were also alerted, the sheriff said.
