Sheriff continues to investigate false report
A Marshall County man was found in satisfactory condition after an intensive search Sunday. He had reportedly been shot and left in a ditch, sheriff Kenny Dickerson said.
Dickerson said a call was made to 911 from the victim’s phone about 1:15 p.m. Sunday. The caller reported a subject had been shot and fatally wounded and thrown in a ditch between Cayce Road and Moore Road. The caller said there would be more shootings.
Sheriff’s patrols launched an intensive manhunt, calling for backup from DeSoto County Sheriff’s Department and its helicopter, the U.S. Marshals service and the Highway Patrol.
After several hours of searching, the call came in that the victim was found in the Highway 309 South area at the intersection of Isaac Chapel Road and Hernando Road.
Medical personnel responded to the scene and the victim stated he had been apprehended at gunpoint, assaulted and thrown in the ditch.
The victim was taken in for questioning and later released. Dickerson said that some false information had been given early in the day. The case remains under investigation with other leads developing.
