HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - One person was taken to the hospital in serious condition after being shot in the head Tuesday. Harrison County Sheriff Troy Peterson said the man suspected of pulling the trigger is still on the run, but two men accused of helping him have been arrested.
According to the sheriff, a warrant for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon has been issued for 19-year-old Robert Foxen. According to the Harrison County jail docket, Foxen was out on bond for stolen firearms charges at the time of the shooting.
Devin Finney, 18, and Chasen Walczak, 20, have been charged with accessory after the fact to aggravated assault.
Peterson said the shooting happened in the parking lot of an apartment complex in the 18000 block of Old Highway 49.
Witnesses told deputies two men, later identified as Foxen and Walczak, pulled into the parking lot shortly before the shooting. One witness said Foxen was standing outside the vehicle and opened fire on another vehicle as it drove by.
The victims quickly left the scene and drove to the hospital. Peterson said one of the passengers was shot in the head.
Investigators later found Walczak at his home and took him in for questioning.
Peterson said investigators determined Foxen hid the gun used in the shooting at Finney's home in Gulfport. He was taken into custody during a traffic stop.
Walczak and Finney were later charged and booked into the Harrison County Adult Detention Facility. Their bonds were set at $100,000.
