Jackson County Sheriff Mike Ezell said the shooting is the result of a suspected drug deal. Bay St. Louis police notified deputies of the shooting Wednesday night at a home on Prescott Drive in Escatawpa.

When deputies arrived, they found several people inside a minivan parked in the driveway. A search of the van turned up a handgun, and shell casings were found in the driveway.

Ezell said the victim of the shooting is from Bay St. Louis and was driven to the hospital by a friend.

The Mississippi Department of Corrections has a hold on Freeman for unrelated charges, according to the sheriff. Freeman is currently in the Jackson County Adult Detention Center with no bond, pending an initial hearing.

Jacob is held at the Jackson County jail with a bond of $10,000 for aggravated assault and $250,000 for shooting into a motor vehicle.
