HARRISON COUNTY, Miss. (WLOX) - A Louisiana man is now facing charges of aggravated assault and felony evasion after authorities say he shot a man several times Wednesday morning.

Steven Mayfield of Marrero, La., was taken into custody around 7:50am after leading deputies on a pursuit from Harrison County into Hancock County.

Authorities say the 39-year-old shot a man around 7am at a residence in the 8000 block of McDonald Road, which is the unincorporated area north of Pass Christian. When deputies arrived, witnesses gave a description of the vehicle and suspect to authorities. Shortly after, a vehicle matching the description was seen traveling on Bells Ferry Road. When deputies tried to stop it, the driver fled, getting on I-10 westbound at speeds reaching nearly 100 mph.

Deputies were able to stop the vehicle on Highway 90 near the Lakeshore community of Hancock County. Mayfield and two passengers were taken into custody.

The victim, who authorities say was shot in the chest and abdomen area, was taken to Memorial Hospital. After undergoing surgery, he is now listed in stable condition.

Mayfield and the two passengers, who have not been identified by Harrison County Sheriff’s Office, were taken to the county jail. Mayfield is charged with one count of aggravated assault and one count of felony evasion. He is being held in lieu of a $750,000 bond set by Justice Court Judge Louise Ladner.

As of 1:30pm Wednesday, mug shots had not been made available for the suspects.
