HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - A man who survived several gunshot wounds to the chest was carrying a small amount of synthetic marijuana at the time of the shooting, according sheriff's department records. Meanwhile, the man charged in the shooting will remain in jail on a $1.5 million bond.
The Harrison County Sheriff's Department incident report was released after Shaquil Oneal Sands' initial court appearance Monday morning. The report details what happened Saturday night when Richard Doby was shot to death and Dijon McCorkle was wounded.
When deputies arrived at Robindale Rd. just after 11 p.m., they found McCorkle in the middle of the street bleeding from multiple gunshots to the chest. A short distance away, deputies discovered Doby lying between two houses. Doby was already dead.
With two people shot, deputies then began searching the neighborhood in case there were more victims.
As a crowd gathered, deputies worked to rope off the area to protect the crime scene as they gathered evidence.
Evidence recovered at the hospital included 1.8 grams of a leafy substance, believed to be spice, found in McCorkle's possession.
McCorkle was taken to Garden Park Medical Center then transferred to Memorial Hospital at Gulfport. However, hospital officials could not release any information on his condition.
Sands' next court appearance will be his preliminary hearing in three to four weeks. He is charged with murder and aggravated assault.
The investigation is ongoing.
