ST. MARTIN, Miss. (WLOX) - A 17-year old Biloxi teen is in jail after a shooting in St. Martin Saturday night.

Sheriff’s investigators arrested the teenager Friday night after a fight and reports of someone shooting from a vehicle in the area of Columbus Circle in St. Martin.

Sheriff Mike Ezell said two houses were struck by bullets.

Investigators found the suspect at a home on Cortez Circle, which is near Columbus Circle. They also recovered a .45 caliber handgun.

The suspect is in the Jackson County jail held on one count of drive-by shooting with a bond of $1 million.

Due to the age of the suspect, WLOX is choosing not to identify the teen at this time.

The case is still under investigation.
