GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

Two Gulfport males were sentenced to serve the remainder of a 20-year sentence after a judge revoked their felony post-release supervision.

Demarcus Bullard, 18, and Derrick Riley, 18, were arrested by the Gulfport Police Department on separate charges relating to the same incident. Bullard was charged with Shooting into an Occupied Dwelling, a felony charge, and Riley was charged with Accessory After the Fact, which is also a felony.

Both men were on post-release supervision after they were convicted in July 2015 for Aggravated Assault for their joint involvement in the 2014 shooting of a man in Gulfport.

“The swift and combined work of the Gulfport Police Department and Harrison County Sheriff’s Department have taken two violent offenders off of our streets. This sort of disregard for the value of human life cannot be tolerated in our community,” said District Attorney Joel Smith.

During the revocation hearing in Bay St. Louis, Judge Lisa P. Dodson heard testimony of witnesses and viewed video obtained by the Gulfport Police Department and found probable cause to support the new felony charges against both Bullard and Riley for their involvement in the May 11, 2018, shooting that occurred at the William Bell Apartments in Gulfport.

In the new shooting, police say multiple shots were reportedly fired by Bullard into an apartment occupied by a mother and three juveniles.

"The testimony revealed that the motive for the shooting was likely fueled a dispute between two women," said ADA Chris Daniel who represented the State at the revocation hearing.
