Four murder suspects arrested

Four Marshall County residents have been arrested and charged in the shooting death of Terry Jerome Bean Holloway on April 29, according to chief Dwight Harris with the Holly Springs Police Department.

Holloway, 34, was shot and killed while driving in his car in the West College Avenue and McKinney Street area.

“He was basically ambushed,” Harris said of the style of the attack on Holloway’s life.

Four suspects have been arrested and charged with murder, he said, and are being held in the Marshall County jail on bond set by the municipal judge, Amanda Smith, at $1 million each.

A father and son were arrested May 5. Harris said a BOLO (Be On the Look Out) was issued following the incident and a Holly Springs police officer spotted the vehicle of Antonio Sims Sr., 39, in the Holly Springs area. Sims’ son, Antonio Sims Jr., 17, was brought in by his mother to the police department, Harris said.

Two other suspects were arrested by U.S. Marshals.

Terry Louis Bolton, 18, of Holly Springs, was picked up by U.S. Marshals Thursday, May 4, in Memphis, Tenn., he said. And Cordarrius Hardin, 20, was picked up by U.S. Marshals in Byhalia Friday, May 5, the chief said.

Three of the suspects are believed to have carried weapons during the shooting, Harris said.

Harris thanked the community and assisting law enforcement agencies for help in the investigation.

“I want to thank the community for their help,” he said. “This is a crystal-clear example of the results that will happen when the community stands up and refuses to accept the taking of a human life as a normal way of life.

“Sadly, this happened to Terry Bean Holloway on April 29, but tomorrow it could be you or your loved one. The police are not everywhere at any one time, but the community is everywhere. So when you see something, say something.”

Harris thanked his investigative officers, Marshall County Sheriff Kenny Dickerson and his investigative team, officers with the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation, agents with the District Attorney’s office, and officers with the U.S. Marshals Service for their help in investigating and making arrests of these four murder suspects.

“My thoughts and prayers are with the Terry Bean Holloway family and with the families of those arrested,” Harris said.

“This is a small community and tragedies like this affect us all.”
