COLUMBUS, MS (AP) - Authorities have resumed the search for two young brothers who were passengers in an all-terrain vehicle that overturned in a Mississippi creek. Columbus Fire Chief Kenneth MooreMore >>
Authorities have recovered the body of a 6-year-old boy who apparently drowned after an all-terrain vehicle overturned in a Mississippi creek, while the search for his brother continued.
The mother and son arrested Tuesday in connection to a shooting in Pascagoula made their court appearances Wednesday.
Clarence William Jones III, 21, and his mother Trina Peden Ratliff, 40, both of Pascagoula appeared before Judge Michael Fondren at the Pascagoula Municipal Courthouse.
Jones faces charges of attempted aggravated assault and possession of a stolen firearm. His mother faces charges of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of a stolen firearm. Jones made his preliminary hearing Wednesday morning. Judge Fondren found probable cause to send Jones' case to a grand jury.
Judge Fondren set Clarence Jones' bond at $100,000 for each charge totaling $200,000. During the shooting incident Jones was out on bond for a previous charge of aggravated assault which he received in January. Judge Fondren has revoked that bond.
Ratliff's bond was set at $5,000 for each of her charges, totaling $10,000.
She waved a preliminary hearing. Now her case will go to a grand jury.
Their arrests came after Jones allegedly shot at someone near Cherokee Elementary School in Pascagoula. The person Jones reportedly shot at ran to the elementary school for safety.
A teacher heard the gunshot, which then sent the school into lockdown. Officials said Jones never even made it on to the school property.
Once the officers realized the school was not the crime scene, they took the victim back to Brazil Street. That's where they arrested Jones for attempted aggravated assault and possession of a stolen firearm.
Ratliff was arrested for being in possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of a stolen firearm.
Both suspects are being held at the Jackson County Adult Detention Center.
