GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - The brother and mother of a Gulfport teenager who accidentally shot himself last month are now facing charges related to a different shooting.
Authorities say 17-year-old Ladarious Thompson and his mother Catrease Hyde-Thompson were involved in a fight with another group of people Tuesday. The disagreement was reportedly over Damien Thompson, the 16-year-old who accidentally shot himself in the chest while trying to make a video for social media. The 16-year old is the son and younger brother of Catrease and Ladarious Thompson, respectively.
It happened around 11 a.m. in the 1600 block of Rich Avenue in Gulfport. No one was injured during the shooting.
Ladarious Thompson is now charged with four counts of aggravated assault. His mother is charged with accessory after the fact. One other woman - 21-year-old Tierra Keyla Anderson - was also arrested and charged with accessory after the fact.
Twenty-two-year-old Laderrick Martin, who was wanted immediately after the shooting, turned himself into police Wednesday afternoon. He is also charged with accessory after the fact.
Ladarious Thompson is charged as an adult and is being held on a $200,000 bond. His mother and Anderson are each being held on a $25,000 bond.
This isn't the first time Ladarious Thompson has been in trouble with the police. In June 2017, the teenager was charged with shooting a house after he reportedly fired shots following a disagreement with a group of people.
