Moss Point police still investigating nightclub shooting

MOSS POINT, MS (WLOX) - Multiple bullet holes now adorn the door of Crème De La Crème Nightclub in Moss Point. Around 3 a.m. on Sunday, someone sprayed bullets in and outside the building. 

Tommie Landrum and his team were providing security for a rap concert at the night spot. He said one of his officers put a man out of the club for indecent behavior, but the man tried several times to sneak back inside.

"I heard about eight to 10 shots go off," Landrum said. "So they told him if he comes back on the grounds again he was going to be put on the ground or go to jail," he added.

 A few minutes later the unthinkable happened.

"The guy just started firing off," Landrum said. "When I dashed out all I saw was my officer down and some other folks running." 

Four women and one man were shot; two of those were Landrum's security officers. 

"The male officer, he is in stable condition; he is talking a little bit. The female, she is in semi-critical condition because of the fact that she got hit multiple times. Right now, it is touch and go here," Landrum said.

"We do not condone this type of activity," owner Spencer Bivens said.

The owner of Crème De La Crème admits there have been small incidents at his club in the past, but not of this magnitude.

Moss Point Police Department said they believe a lot of people were here and probably got a look at the suspect. These witnesses could help catch the shooter.

Detective Joseph Savage said information provided by witnesses would help, but a lot of people are fearful of coming forward.

However, Savage said citizen policing could help solve the case faster. "It is important for these people to pay for what they have done. We do need the citizen's help," Savage said.

Moss Point citizens couldn't agree more. 

"We just need to find the young man who committed this crime," Landrum said. 

One of the victims shot could be paralyzed because of serious wounds.

If you have any information that might help with this case, call the Moss Point Police Department at (228) 475-1711.
