Separate Shootings Claim Four Lives Across South Mississippi

Three separate shootings left four people dead across South Mississippi Monday.

The first happened just after 8:30 in the morning. Neighbors in the 2100 block of 32nd Avenue in Gulfport heard loud yelling between the married couple. They called police after the man pulled a hand gun and began shooting.

Charles Dedeaux Jr. died of two self-inflicted gunshot wounds to the chest. His wife, Shantell Dedeaux, died after being taken by helicopter to the University of South Alabama Medical Center.

Later Monday afternoon, a Latimer woman died after police say she tried to attack a sheriff's deputy who then shot her. It happened around 11:00 at the woman's home on Bonanza Lane.

Sheriff Mike Byrd said they got a call that the woman was holding her mother hostage with a butcher knife. When deputies got into the house, Byrd said the woman came at them.

Then, just before 4:00, another shooting took place in D'Iberville. Authorities say the man walked into the Hancock Bank and demanded to see his wife who was an employee. As soon as he saw her, investigators say he shot and killed her.

The man took off, leading police on a foot chase into some nearby woods. At last report, police were trying to convince the man to give himself up. They believed he was still armed.
